Attending Glee, the leading garden and leisure industry show, was a great opportunity for Nathan Dodd to spot trends and anticipate products that will come onto the market in the near future.
David Coton, one of the partners at GardenSite, was recently pleased to nominate Natalie Playford from Grange Fencing for our award that recognises excellent Customer Service.
The GardenSite Customer Service Award was well deserved and resulted from Natalie's immediate attention to a query that David had raised with her, and the efficient way in which she dealt with it.
Natalie works in the Home Delivery Department of Grange Fencing, a company that supplies timber products of all kinds including arbours, pergolas and gazebos.
The query focussed on a size discrepancy David noticed between the catalogue and the Grange website.
After David spoke to Natalie, she acted quickly to discover the correct size, confirmed this with her colleagues and then notified all the parties concerned.
David felt the way in which Natalie responded was exemplary and she deserved recognition and credit in the form of this GardenSite award.
We have a long working relationship with Grange and the award reflects how we really appreciate the great support we receive from Natalie and the rest of the team.

With only a few months' training under her belt, GardenSite's own Flori Bosnigeanu took part in this year's Great Birmingham Run, raising over £500 for the city's Children's Hospital.
