We are extremely proud to receive the “Sub-Contractor of The Year 2021” award from our client, Skanska.
This award recognised our staff’s hard work and dedication to not only the regular grounds maintenance that we provide Skanska but also for various landscaping projects.
We have been awarded a contract for the provision of grounds maintenance for 4 schools (spread across 5 sites) in Essex for our existing client, Skanska, commencing January 2022.
As well as general grounds maintenance, our service provision will also include sports pitch maintenance and markings, All Weather Pitch maintenance, tree maintenance, gritting and snow clearance.
Following a competitive tendering exercise, we have been awarded a 4 year contract with Cambridge Housing Society Group carrying out grounds maintenance for their 124 sites. We are in the process of organising our resources for the start date of 1st of November when we will be providing grounds maintenance for their residential properties and sheltered housing schemes.
With an increasing number of sites to maintain, comes the need to add to our fleet of vehicles and equipment.
We have recently taken delivery of this Isuzu D-Max Pick-Up truck, it’s sign written and already been put to work on our contracts in Essex. It is proving a great addition towing our new trailer which transports our Ransome Batwing mower, which was also recently purchased to meet the demands of our sports fields cuts across Essex freeing up our John Deere tractor for more local work.
Our tractor team are busy with cutting large scale boundary hedges using our rear-mounted side-arm flail. We suspend these works until outside of the bird nesting season and all hedges are inspected by our service teams for bird activity prior to maintenance.
We are busy helping our educational clients with preparations for their annual Sports Day. After an unsettling year it is fantastic to see this popular summer school event return in line with existing restrictions. The traditional end of term Sports Day maybe slightly different to previous years for both pupils and their parents but we are sure they will be just as enjoyable!
Following a competitive tendering exercise, we are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the contract for the supplier of grounds maintenance to the following Police Forces:
Hertfordshire Constabulary, Bedfordshire Police, Cambridgeshire Constabulary, Kent Police and Essex Police.
We were first awarded the contract with Herts police in 1999 and have been successful during three formal re-tenders, the latest being in 2016 when the contract was tendered jointly with Beds and Cambs Police.
From July 2021 we will deliver grounds maintenance services, reactive call-out maintenance and repairs services and winter gritting to over 120 sites across these five counties.
Our colleagues are taking a well deserved rest over the Easter weekend and we will be closed from Friday 2nd April and we will reopen on Tuesday 6th April. Any emergency phone calls will be attended to by our on-call manager during that time.
Here at MWGM we are getting ready for the grass cutting season. Within the next few weeks these shiny new additions will be put to work on our clients’ sites. Ensuring that we always use the best quality equipment helps us to deliver superior results.
