Phoenix Natural Gas has today announced its support of the Kids Gardening Club at Hillmount. The free to attend club is hosted at Hillmount garden lifestyle centres in Ards, Bangor and Belfast on the first Saturday of each month.

Alan Mercer, Managing Director, Hillmount, said:

“As a fourth generation garden lifestyle centre, at Hillmount we are committed to teaching our next generation about the beauty of nature and the thrill of planting seeds which bloom into flowers or giving the children who attend plants to take away which grow into edible strawberries for them to enjoy. Our kids gardening club has grown in popularity over the past year in all our garden centres and we welcome the support from Phoenix Natural Gas in what is a very important initiative for Hillmount.”

Geri Wright, Communications Manager at Phoenix Natural Gas, said:Hillmount

“Natural gas is a fuel with inherent environmental benefits and since arriving in Northern Ireland in 1996, has provided local energy consumers with an energy source that is up to 50% less carbon polluting than the non-regulated oil and coal alternatives.

“Environmental responsibility is a key focus for us and Phoenix Natural Gas is actively involved with environmental partners to implement corporate social responsibility initiatives that will bring real benefit to local communities.

“We are delighted to establish this new partnership with Hillmount Kids Gardening Club and help inspire the younger generation to care about the environment, and learn how to protect it, through a very engaging and fun initiative. I would encourage families to come along to the Gardening Club and enjoy a great morning getting close to nature and learning about the fantastic plant life at Hillmount.”
