0 First amenity forum conference announced at Edgbaston

First Amenity Forum conference focuses on the environment

By Geoff Dodgson

Safeguarding the environment, complying with regulations and following best practice are the themes for the first conference organised by the Amenity Forum next March.

'The Weed and Pest Control Challenge' takes place on 1st March 2006 at Warwickshire County Cricket Club's Edgbaston ground in Birmingham.

Jon Allbutt, chairman of the Amenity Forum says: "Regulatory compliance and standards of weed and pest control in the amenity have been criticised in a number of recent reports. Senior managers in the amenity sector have a duty to protect the environment, and those with responsibility for pesticide use, need to understand the regulations and ensure their staff and contractors comply with the law and follow best practice."

He continued, "This conference will be a great opportunity for all the stakeholders in the sector to discuss the issues around environmental protection, improve their understanding of pesticide regulations and identify practical solutions."

Conference registration details are available from the Amenity Forum Conference Event Organiser Becky Dwyer on becky.dyer@bcpc.org or telephone 01420 593200.
