Horticulture Week is delighted to announce the launch of the 2019 Custodian Awards - the leading awards scheme for professionals managing the UK’s parks, gardens, woodlands and landscape.
This prestigious awards scheme, honours the outstanding achievements of the professionals who make the UK’s parks, gardens and green spaces the vital and vibrant places they are today, and to ensure those achievements are recognised by customers, clients and stakeholders.
Management achievement is recognised with categories celebrating outstanding work across all areas of activity including restoration and redevelopment, on-going management and maintenance, partnership working, volunteer and community engagement, and more.
New categories have been launched for 2019 that reward the very best parks and gardens design projects, outstanding green infrastructure planning and, in recognition of the financial challenges facing many in the sector, the very best funding initiatives.
The Awards are open to all professionals responsible for the management and development of parks, gardens and other green spaces, including in-house management teams, contractor organisations (where the contractor has taken on the primary management role) and specialist consultants.
Winners will be announced on Tuesday 25 June 2019 at a ceremony at the stunning Woburn Abbey House & Gardens, which will be run alongside Parks & Gardens Live.
