Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire Programme

Our business is passionate about the environment! We have taken steps to reduce our energy consumption, lowering our carbon emissions for our loved local community. As a business we have invested in LED lights. This will make a huge difference to the environment and this is just the start of our sustainable journey.

To help us invest in these energy saving measures we had support from Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire. Through this we received a grant of £9,197.14 to enable us to make these fantastic changes.

The £8.5 million Smart Energy programme has been part funded by the European Regional Development fund. This is enabling small to medium businesses across the Greater Lincolnshire area invest in energy saving technology.

Judges’ comments: This is a unique product. It doeswhat it says on the packaging. It is also well priced. This product is so good we’re going to buy some for our shops when we leave here.

Managing Director of Aqueos Care Ltd, Tracy Richards said ‘We are delighted to win this Award. It’s all the more prestigious because it has been voted by retailers in the Pet Trade and it has helped promote the product at the show”

The spray gives a bandage like protection and remains elastic while being breathable and waterproof. Whether being used on horses, dogs, chickens or any other animal it is easy to apply in awkward areas and stays in place while the wound heals reducing the risk of infection.
