The Town Council would like to wish Ken Wannop, our Park Manager, a very long and happy retirement, after 21 years of dedicated service looking after our parks and open spaces. The Town has been lucky to have benefited from the vast experience and knowledge which Ken brought to the role. Ken has been instrumental in bringing Silloth Green up to the high standard it is today, having achieved a Green Flag award for the last 8 years in succession and we’ve also had successes with Britain in Bloom etc.. None of this would have been possible without our grounds maintenance team, with Ken at the helm. All the very best Ken, on the next chapter of your life!
We would also like to take this opportunity to welcome Mark Cole on to the team, who is a local lad and started with us last month. He will be working alongside Dave Hart, to continue keeping our parks and open spaces in tip top condition for our local residents and visitors. We’ve always had a team with a wide range of skills between them and Mark has a lot of relevant experience behind him.
