We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded the Green Flag Award again this year for both of our Exeter campuses.
The Green Flag is awarded for quality green spaces across the country, for more information, please visit the Green Flag website.
On the 4th September the Grounds Teams got together to celebrate our achievements this year, including retaining the Green Flag Award for both campuses and for another successful Graduation Week.
We enjoyed a barbecue at Holland Hall with some fun awards and a quiz, which really brought out the competitive side of some of our gardeners! The weather wasn’t quite up to snuff – hence the dark photos – but we are a hardy lot in the Grounds team and it takes more than an overcast day to stop us!
Ross, from our Sports Team, was awarded the ‘Star of the Year’ award, and, as with all the best award ceremonies, he was not available on the day to collect his award, so our Grounds Operations Manager, David Evans, presented him with his trophy the following week.
Awards were also received by Helen, Clive, Luke and Derek for being all round good eggs.
Our Horticultural Highlights booklet for the St. Luke’s Campus is done! Helen at the University’s Design Studio has done a brilliant job with both the Streatham and the St. Luke’s leaflets.
The booklet is available for download from the website.
To celebrate a successful graduation week and being re-awarded Green Flags for both Streatham and St. Luke’s the Grounds staff were treated to a celebration barbecue at the end of July. We also had an award ceremony and Peter, the Assistant Grounds Manager for the Central Estate Team won Gardener of the Year!
*Drum roll, please*
The Horticultural Highlights for Streatham Campus is now available to download from our website.
