Announcement

It is with deepest regret that we inform you of the recent passing of one of our valuable members of staff Ben Grasby. Ben moved from Hull and joined the company in 2015 undertaking a variety of surveys from phase 1 bat survey, reptile surveys, amphibian survey and ecological clerk of works. His passion was with amphibians and reptiles and he had recently completed a series of great created newt surveys where he was supervised taking the lead and was close to obtaining his own personal great created newt licence. Ben had a great way with clients and always wanted to see a project through from the start to finish. He was able to liaise with clients in a professional manor and was an asset to the company.

Our thoughts go out to his family and Ben will be sorely missed by all his colleagues at LCES.

It was with great sadness that members of the team attended the funeral of one of our valuable members of staff Ben Grasby last Friday. Ben moved from Hull and joined the company in 2015 undertaking a variety of surveys from phase 1 bat surveys, reptile surveys, amphibian surveys and ecological clerk of works.
His passion was with amphibians and reptiles, and he had recently enjoyed undertaking an adder handling training morning and completed a series of great crested newt surveys where he took the lead and was close to obtaining his own personal great crested newt licence. Ben had a great way with clients and always wanted to see a project through from start to finish. He was an asset to the company.
Our thoughts go out to his family and Ben will be sorely missed by all his colleagues at LCES.

Thank you to Chris from CGO ecology for training us on adder handling last Friday afternoon. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed seeing an adder and a smooth snake in the sun!
