Moor Park and Cannington employees receive 'Unsung Heroes' honour at BTME

Recognised for their outstanding commitment to the industry, groundsman Keri Jarman and head greenkeeper Hugh Murray picked up awards at BTME last week as Terrain Aeration's latest Unsung Heroes.

Jarman, working at Moor Park Golf Course, took only four days' leave in 2009 despite losing both parents in quick succession, caring for his disabled brother and breaking his leg after slipping on ice.

Murray, head greenkeeper at Cannington Golf Course in Somerset and a regular member of the Horticulture Week machinery review panel, has spent 15 years maintaining the course to a high standard and also instructing hundreds of students.

Steve Gingell of the STRI spoke on behalf of his fellow judges when he said that Hugh's passion and enthusiasm for the job had made him a tireless ambassador for the turf profession, while Keri's unflagging commitment and dedication was unprecedented. "These two exceptional individuals are deserving winners," he added.

Jarman and Murray received a cheque from award sponsors Pitchcare and the English Golf Union, as well as a framed certificate and cheque from award organiser Terrain Aeration.
