Denny Bros in Bury St Edmunds trials e-bikes as part of Suffolk County Council’s sustainability scheme





Staff at Bury St Edmunds printing company Denny Bros have been trialling e-bikes to reduce their carbon footprint.

Four members of staff will spend two months using the bikes for commuting to work as well as for fitness and leisure as part of the Way To Go Suffolk sustainability scheme set up by Suffolk County Council.

Account manager Beth Lebbon said: “As a company, we pride ourselves on our environmental measures and promoting these to our staff.

“This is just another great example of that and the initial feedback from staff has been really positive.”

Those participating in the scheme will be signposted to cost-effective ways of buying or hiring the bikes for future use.

The e-bikes have been supplied by rental provider Hurrecane.

Cllr Alexander Nicoll, deputy cabinet member for transport strategy at Suffolk County Council, said: “The e-bikes project is all about promoting sustainable travel and we are delighted to have businesses sign up to the scheme from across the county.

“There are huge benefits including reducing usage of cars and our carbon footprint as well as improving our mental wellbeing and financial savings.

“We are delighted to hear from staff how well received the e-bikes have been and would urge any other Suffolk companies to get in touch if they want to take part in the scheme.”
