GreenAcres chosen to represent UK
GreenAcres Woodland Burials will be representing the cemetery sector and the UK in this year’s European Business Awards.
The company, formerly known as Woodland Burial Parks, has been chosen as a National Finalist in the Customer Focus category of the 2012/13 Awards.
National Finalists will now battle it out for National Champion status in the next round of the competition.
“We’re delighted to be selected to represent the UK,” said Nicky Whichelow, Group Marketing and Sales Manager at Greenacres. “We’ve been operating for more than 10 years in the cemetery sector and it’s an honour to be recognised as one of the leading organisations in our country and in our field.
“Our founding principle is to provide ‘impeccable service in a natural environment for a totally personal funeral’ – and this European Business Awards’ nomination reflects our absolute commitment to customer service and to putting the needs of our customers first.”
Greenacres is a five-times winner in the Cemetery of the Year Awards and also holds Green Apple, Investors in People, Green Hero and Green Flag accreditation.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards, said: “Over the past six years we’ve received an incredibly high standard of entries from organisations that are passionate about their business. However, very few get the chance to fly the flag for their country and compete across Europe to be recognised as one of Europe’s leading companies. It really is an exceptional accolade to be picked as a National Finalist, and together with our sponsors and supporters we’re looking forward to seeing GreenAcres Woodland Burials in the next round.”
The European Business Awards are dedicated to raising the visibility and progress of companies which excel in delivering excellent customer service twinned with successful commercial results.
GreenAcres’ three existing parks – Colney in Norfolk, Epping Forest in Essex, and Chiltern Woodland Burial Park in Buckinghamshire – are fully-staffed 356 days a year and have helped over 1000 families say goodbye to their loved ones with respect and empathy in the setting of a beautiful English woodland. The company has also announced plans to create a nationwide network of 20 woodland cemeteries by 2020.
