Parish Council agrees contract Renewal for 2020/21

Shed Grounds Maintenance are delighted to retain contract with North Ferriby Council for 2020/21.

Client retention is something we are proud of at Shed and to develop and maintain strong working relationships is something we value greatly. Having started working with North Ferriby Parish Council in April 2019, we are delighted to have been appointed to continue for another year.

Maintaining grounds for The Town and Parish Councils is an area Shed have developed over the years and we now care for many across the country. Working with councils require mowing across a multitude of different sites including cemeteries, large playing fields and multiple grass verges. These all require different skills, machinery and equipment to do them well: larger areas are mown using ride-on triple deck mower, whilst smaller areas are cut using a pedestrian rotary mower allowing for greater precision and control.

North Ferriby sits on the Humber river in East Riding of Yorkshire, close to Hull. A little-known fact is that some of the first bronze age boats were discovered here from 1937 onwards in the Humber. Called the ‘Ferriby Boats’, only a small number of boats of a similar period have been found in Britain and the Ferriby examples are the earliest known sewn-plank boats found in Europe dating as far back as 2030 BC.
