It is with great sadness we announce that John O’Conner passed away on 24th March 2020.
John was admitted to the Lister Hospital on 12th March and diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus. Due to underlying health issues he was moved to the Intensive Care Unit but died following a short battle with the illness.
John started the business in 1969 and steered it through its first 50 years, his strong principles and values remain the bedrock of the company today. He showed great passion, not only for his business, but the industry as a whole. He was a former Chairman of the British Association of Landscape Industries, and was an active member for many years.
John was an immense character and much loved family man who will leave a long and lasting memory for all who met and knew him. He will be sadly missed.
Our thoughts go to Matt, Liz and family at this difficult time.
