Graham receives achievement award

Radbournes are a Melcourt Master Stockist of high quality bark and wood products with an extensive range of materials in stock, and also access to the complete Melcourt range including: Playbark, Play chips, Bark nuggets, Spruce, Ornamental mulching bark, Composted bark soil improver, and at Melcourt’s recent gathering, Graham Preece of Radbournes was presented with an achievement award.

Around 40 members of Melcourt’s unique national master stockist network gathered at its bark processing operation in Bishop’s Castle, Shropshire, last week to tour the facility, review progress in a challenging year – and to look forward with some confidence to the coming year. “As the UK’s leading bark supplier to landscape professionals and play providers we are a key barometer as to the health of both sectors,” says Andy Chalmers, Sales and Marketing Director of Melcourt. “This year has had its share of challenges but despite that both sales and profitability have held up well. We have also continued to increase the number of stockists in our network and develop our range with the addition of bagged topsoil and play sand.”

“The gravel has been delivered thank you. Just wanted to say how helpful your driver was too, it is tight coming along the lane but he didn’t mind and went the extra mile to get the gravel far enough into my field so me could get past it. He was really helpful. Thank you very much.”
