Terrain Aeration launched their fifth Unsung Hero Awards in conjunction with Pitchcare and Greenkeeping magazine.
Brian Firmin, Head Groundsman at Halstead Cricket Club, one of Terrain's Unsung Heroes for 2006 was on hand to open nominations for this year's awards, which will see one Groundsman and one Greenkeeper honoured at a special ceremony during Harrogate Week in January.
Designed to recognise the scores of individuals who routinely perform over and above the call of duty, the awards are open to all Greenkeepers and Groundsmen nominated by anyone (other than family) connected to the industry. Judged by ex. IOG Chairman Derek Walder, past BIGGA Chairman Gordon Child and STRI Senior Agronomist and Southern Area Manager Steve Gingell, the winners will receive holiday vouchers and a framed certificate provided by Terrain Aeration and £200 donated by sponsors Pitchcare and Greenkeeping magazine. They will also be featured on both the websites and within the publications of the sponsors.
Nomination forms are available via the link below, the Greenkeeping website and direct from Terrain Aeration on Tel :01449 673783 or website www.terrainaeration.co.uk
