Alvis Brothers Ltd have taken action to improve the watercourse surrounding Lye Cross Farm following two pollution incidents in 2019. Working with the Bristol Avon Rivers Trust, a survey from October 2020 shows a marked improvement in the health of the watercourse under the control of Alvis Brothers Ltd.
The pollution incidents, which involved a tributary to the River Yeo, near Cheddar, were reported to the Environment Agency. Immediate action was taken by Alvis Brothers on both occasions to ensure that no further pollution occurred.
The company deeply regret and sincerely apologise for the incidents. After 70 years of trading, Alvis Brothers remain committed to farming and producing high quality food in harmony with the environment.
