Halloween with Host 2021

The spooky season is upon us, and it’s nice to see everyone getting into the Halloween spirit. So to celebrate our sites went all out with some truly spook-tacular decorations this year, from office spaces to communal lounges,  also hosting horror movie nights and parties for students with sweets, drink and a tarot table or two.

We’ve put together a look at some of these events, so a big thanks to everyone who took part, and congratulations to the winners of the various pumpkin carving/costume competitions. However you celebrated, we hope you had a fang-tastic time.

#HostEnvironmentalPledge.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.

To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.

It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.
