Green Space and Parks Teams covering Stockport Borough (East)

Since the COVID-19 Pandemic many of our Green Space team members have adapted their skills to work flexibly across the business to Support TLC’s Essential Services.

Martin Taylor, Carl Palmer, Mark Collinge, Scott Divilly, Dale Hart, Dave Edge, would normally be mowing with a tractor and carrying out their gardening duties, but they have over the last few weeks been litter picking, emptying Parks bins or litter picking removing detritus on the streets.

Tom Shaw and Ryan Macallister would normally be operating a ride on mower or gardening but they both now focus their work by either litter picking, emptying Parks bins or litter picking removing detritus on the streets.
Malc Thomas and Martin Landy would normally be keeping the countryside paths across the borough free of vegetation encroachment and gearing up for borough wide football pitch renovations, which usually take place in May. They are now either litter picking, emptying Parks bins or litter picking removing detritus on the streets.

Daryl Falconer is based in Reddish Vale Country Park would normally be mowing or gardening, he is now litter picking, emptying bins and removing detritus in the park.

Paul Eaton is based in Etherow Country Park he would normally be mowing or gardening, but he is now litter picking, emptying bins removing detritus in the park.

Dave Forber has returned to work after self-isolation, he would normally be cutting and taking care of the bowling greens on the East of Stockport, but he is now either litter picking, emptying Parks bins or litter picking removing detritus on the streets.

Stuart Aikenhead has continued to support the Parks and Green Space team, emptying bins on Parks and greenspace sites all year round.

The team have also supported the business without any fuss and have:

  • Delivered Wheelie Bins.
  • Picked up Minibuses.
  • Driven Minibuses to sites with R & R Crews
  • Installed Covid-19 Self-Distance signs across East work areas.
  • Removed Fly Tipping.

‘Thank You’ to all of the team members of the Green Space and Parks Team, especially during this difficult time, for their hard work and dedication in supporting other areas and being as flexible as possible to keep TLC Operations running smoothly.
