At Goddards we take great pride in our team and the years of experience we have to offer. This year we have celebrated the anniversary of some of our longest serving members of staff.

Peter Bassett has been with Goddards for 25 years, starting as a keen young guy on the shovel and has grown with the company. He brings his years of onsite experience to his role as Contracts Director.

Sue in payroll, and once accounts manager, has also celebrated 25 years with Goddards, now working part-time se is still a font of Goddards knowledge.

Andrew Butcher our Landscape Director joined the management team 10 years ago and has been instrumental in initiating our series of BALI Awards, of which we are proud to have won another Principle Award this year.

Ale, our head of accounts has also been at the company for 10 years and is a much valued member of the team.

We have also celebrated the birthday of our oldest member of staff, Ray aged 75, who runs the workshop part-time. Ray has worked with us for 20 years and is still able to bend the ear of the youngest when they return broken machines.
