Contract renewal creates new roles at Glendale

National green service provider Glendale has had its contract to provide grounds maintenance services for the Progress Housing Group renewed for a further three years, resulting in the appointment of two apprentices.

The apprentices will gain valuable experience as part of a team of ten grounds management specialists carrying out grass cutting, weed killing, shrub and hedge maintenance, litter picking and leaf clearance at sites in Fleetwood, Kirkham, Clifton, Bamber Bridge, Leyland, Preston and Chorley.

Lancashire-based Progress Housing Group owns and manages over 10,000 homes across the UK, providing affordable housing, independent living, supported housing and supported living accommodation for people with learning disabilities and autism, in addition to employment, training support and Technology Enabled Care and Support services across the North West.

The grounds maintenance contract has the potential to be extended for a further two years.

Glendale has also updated its machinery, investing in new mulching mowers, strimmers and cut and collect equipment.

The apprentices, who are studying through Myerscough College, are working towards a level 2 horticulture qualification.

Paul Woodward, contract supervisor at Glendale, said: “It’s a pleasure to be continuing our partnership with Progress Housing Group, keeping gardens, green spaces and communal areas looking presentable for communities and helping to support the Group’s vision and values.

“Glendale is committed to providing employment opportunities, particularly apprenticeships, which are a chance to learn skills through hands-on experience while working towards a valuable qualification – so it’s great to welcome two new members of staff to the team.”

Tammy Bradley, operations director at Progress Housing Group, said: “Progress Housing Group has been working with Glendale for over six years and the renewal of this contract provides the opportunity to continue and develop a value for money and quality service that meets our tenants’ expectations. I would like to thank all those involved, especially our customers who have been involved in the selection process and will help us to monitor the performance and standards.”
