UNSUNG HEROES - DON'T MISS OUT!
By Carol Dutton
There's still time to give one of your colleagues the chance of a week's holiday in the south of France.
As a practising UK Greenkeeper or Groundsman you can nominate your chosen unsung hero, putting him or her forward for Terrain Aeration's special award (in conjunction with Turf Professional magazine and Pitchcare website) which offers the hire of a house in Languedoc, plus flights to Montpellier or £150 towards car travel.
Situated in the small village of Neffies, surrounded by vineyards and 40 minutes from the Mediterranean, the house sleeps up to six and is fully equipped with washing machine, fridge freezer etc.
Designed to recognise the hard work and professionalism which often goes unsung in our industry, the nominations will be judged by Gordon Child (BIGGA), Derek Walder (IOG) and Tim Lodge (STRI), and the winners, one Greenkeeper and one Groundsman, will be announced at BTME 2004.
The judges will not necessarily be looking for turf care skills (there are awards for these already), but individuals whose dedication either to their jobs or their colleagues has improved the quality of working life at their particular work place.
You know these unsung heroes. Log on to the Pitchcare website, grab a copy of Turf Professional September issue, or call Terrain Aeration now on Tel: 01449 673783 for a nomination form.THE UNSUNG HEROES AWARD CLOSES ON 5TH. NOV. BUT LAST MINUTE NOMINATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED UNTIL 10TH.
