We thank him for all of his efforts and contributions over the years. He has been an extremely valuable member of the team and we wish him a long and enjoyable retirement."
The two new members of staff have both come from the turf industry; Simon, 38 has gained significant experience in machinery sales during his time with a well-known agriculture and groundscare dealership in Nottinghamshire.
