Halloween with Host 2021

The spooky season is upon us, and it’s nice to see everyone getting into the Halloween spirit. 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.
