My father worked on the filming of The British Open in 1984. Seeing the green up so close inspired me to take up gardening as a hobby, and eventually make a career out of it.

I’m working out in the fresh air every day doing a variety of work and get to meet many different people. Gardening is great for stress relief and you can achieve so much if you have the passion and are prepared to work hard.

I like being set challenges and tasks and find great satisfaction in achieving them. The Grove is a great environment to work in and we are encouraged to further our education with opportunities to enrol on training courses. It’s a great place if you are looking to improve yourself.
