On Thursday 14th November, as part of the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel’s Eco Active Red Squirrel Championship, the hotel’s Executive Chef spent the afternoon with St Lawrence School pupils to raise awareness of healthy eating for squirrels and advise on the best way to feed these mammals by custom-making a tasty menu designed for squirrels!

Chef Duffy consulted Eco Active biodiversity experts to create a special menu designed for a squirrel’s dietary requirements and palette, with dishes including a ‘Waldorf Salad’ ‘Nut-Roast’and a ‘Blueberry Crumble’. The St Lawrence school children helped in producing these creative dishes.

Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel became the first business in Jersey to champion the Red Squirrel under the ECO-ACTIVE Biodiversity Championship Scheme run in conjunction with the States of Jersey. The team has developed a range of initiatives to get local school children involved in conserving the red squirrels. 

Taking responsibility for the environment and the local community plays an important role in the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel’s operations. Commenting on the hotel’s two year commitment to the scheme Radisson Blu Director of Sales and Marketing, Lydia Smith, said “We’re really pleased to develop our Red Squirrel Championship, raising awareness and working with the local community is one of our key environmental responsibilities.”

St Lawrence School head teacher, Chris Jones said “We’re thrilled to be working with Radisson Blu on a range of exciting activities such as these; the school has been encouraging and feeding red squirrels to the area for some time, it’s great for the pupils to be involved. Looking at biodiversity and our school grounds is part of our Eco Schools curriculum. Projects like this are a great way of gaining whole school involvement which is a key criteria for Eco School programme.”
