Award Success Continues for Grosvenor!
Following the announcement that Grosvenor has achieved the award of Garden Centre of Excellence for an unprecedented 11th consecutive year, Grosvenor’s award success has continued, judged to be one of the most environmentally aware garden centres in the UK.
In conjunction with the Garden Centre Association, to receive the Colour Your Life Green Community Award is a prestigious honour focusing on illustrating how important plants, shrubs and trees are on the environment, both economically and socially, and the impact of environmental awareness within a forward thinking business such as Grosvenor.
“Here at Grosvenor we aim to nurture an interest in gardening whilst at the same time promoting the benefits of plants in our everyday lives,” commented Julie Gregory, Colour Your Life ‘Champion’.
“The impact plants can have on our wellbeing and the environment is vast but over the last 12 months in particular we have focused on redeveloping and rejuvenating the impact that the Grow Your Own experience has had on our visitors – a practice which is continuing to grow and reap rewards on the green space around us.”
A ‘Green Grosvenor’ team is in place at the Garden Centre with members from every area encouraged to devise initiatives to move the Colour Your Life initiative forward and continue to raise awareness of how Grosvenor works together with the local community to improve their effect on the environment and reduce their carbon footprint.
“Having won the Colour Your Life Green Community Award (previously known as the Green City Town & Country Award) each year since its inception three years ago, we are delighted to have once again retained such a prestigious environmental award to underpin our values and efforts here at Grosvenor,” said Iain Wylie, Managing Director.
“Grosvenor has once again shown that their focus on improving their impact on the environment with inspirational initiatives has been excellent and I was delighted to judge them one of the best in the UK. I would like to thank them for their continuing support of this award and look forward to witnessing their new ideas over the coming months,” said Mark Long, Colour Your Life Green Community Award.
