standards, but they have the commitment and enthusiasm necessary to provide a service that’s second to none. We fully recognise that Greenfields’ housing and their appearance are key to the standing of its organisation and we will do everything to ensure that their grounds will always look their best. We are really excited to have already started the work and look forward to the seasons ahead.”
