Bridgman & Bridgman are a commercial landscape and living roof services provider based in Wolverton, Milton Keynes. The company lead on the Don’t Rubbish Wolverton campaign, which engaged over 20 resident volunteers during the first clean-up back in 2013, as well as the local council and refuse contractors to help clean up the streets. In one weekend over six tonnes of waste were removed. Since then, they have established a network of Volunteer Street Monitors, providing them with necessary equipment to help stop fly tipping and keep the streets cleaner and safer.
Location: Wolverton, Milton Keynes
In 2017, the company sponsored and organised a week-long illumination event within the local Secret Garden, which was free to the public. The event engaged a world-renowned light artist to illuminate the woodland, formal gardens, canal boats and artwork, attracting over 6,400 visitors and raising over £1,890 for the Garden.
Director Chris Bridgman also secured support and funding from environmental charity Hubbub to introduce the first ever ‘Community Fridge’ in Milton Keynes, which resulted in 11 tonnes of food being diverted from landfill. Unlike a food bank, the Fridge is available to everyone. In the same year, they also pledged to make a big difference in Wolverton, home of the Directors and the company’s HQ, for MK50 – 50 years of Milton Keynes. In celebration, the company funded colourful MK50 flags for the shopfronts and bunting. To enhance its visual appeal, the town has entered the RHS Britain in Bloom competition for 11 years, only to receive its highest ever recognition – a silver-gilt. Last year the company put in their own team, and resources valued at over £6,000, to win the town its first ever GOLD award.
