Professional Services to the Community Award – Lowe Maintenance

The judges were particularly taken with this team of two, husband and wife, Demelza and Phill, based in Settle, where they set up a training centre seven years ago.

Their business, Lowe Maintenance, has so far provided technical training to more than 1,500 people in more than 30 qualifications within the land-based sector, from tree climbing and pest control, to the use of machinery and pesticides.

Testament to their excellent customer service is the fact that some 80 per cent of its business involves returning candidates.

These customers are kept engaged by a monthly newsletter which updates them on relevant legislative changes and safety alerts.

Long after they have completed a course, Demelza and Phill prides themselves on offering their customers ongoing guidance.
