Southport solicitors get fruity


A Southport solicitors’ office is promoting healthy eating by providing its workforce with fresh fruit.

Breens Solicitors Southport has taken the initiative following consultative with staff.

Senior partner, Stephen Breen said: “Many of our employees expressed a desire to adopt a healthier lifestyle in 2016.  There is always an abundance of sweets, chocolate and biscuits in the office at this time of year so in order to tempt them away from their sugary treats, we are supplying an alternative.”

Breens buys a varied selection of fruits from local shops on a weekly basis.  This is a move that has proved popular with its staff.

Debbie Ridehalgh, client liaison manager, explained: “It’s so easy to snack on unhealthy foods during the working day, but now it is the fruit which catches your eye when you go into the kitchen not the biscuits.  I’m a fruit lover anyway but this makes it easy for me to get my five a day.”

Studies have shown the supply of fruit in offices improves staff morale, reduces employee absenteeism, and increases productivity.  Breens will be monitoring the fruit-effect over the next few months to find out if a fruit full workforce is a fruitful workforce.

Breens Solicitors specialise in residential conveyancing, wills and probate, and personal injury.
