Cycle to Work Scheme

A&P Falmouth will achieve its commitment to protect the natural environment by implementing its Environmental Policy into all aspects of its Falmouth operation.  One of these initiatives is its very successful Cycle to Work Scheme.

 

Greg Carroll from the Commercial Department, is the latest employee to join A&P Falmouth’s Cycle to Work scheme.  The scheme is operated by the company through payroll and salary sacrifice (exchange).  

 

Since the commencement of the Scheme four years ago in June 2008 the company has purchased 146 bikes worth nearly £120,000.
