Glendale to keep gardens green for Stockport Homes

National green services provider Glendale has been awarded a five-year contract to provide grounds maintenance for social housing provider Stockport Homes.

A team of operatives working across neighbourhoods managed by Stockport Homes will manage and maintain grass, hedges, shrub, rose and flower beds, weeds and hard surfaces, ensuring all sites are clean, tidy and presentable.

Several apprenticeship roles, opportunities for placements and sponsorship to support community events will be created as a result of the contract.

Customers will also have access to information about services in their area through a portal which provides details on when work is scheduled to take place and has been completed.

Daniela Blomeley, contract manager at Glendale said: “Supporting communities is always at the core of the work Glendale does and we’re pleased to be continuing our strong partnership with Stockport Homes.

“We want tenants to feel proud of their gardens and communal areas and we’re looking forward to continuing our work to make green spaces places for local people to enjoy.”

Robin Burman, chair of the board at Stockport Homes, said: “Stockport Homes is committed to ensuring that all green spaces within our neighbourhood are managed and maintained to the highest standards.

“We have worked with Glendale for the last ten years and are looking forward to continuing to deliver excellent green space services to meet customers’ needs and at the same time support our wider social, economic and wellbeing activities, through local employment and training opportunities, support to environmental improvements and community health and well-being activities.”
