British Sugar TOPSOIL to support first ever GMA #GroundsWeek

British Sugar TOPSOIL is proud to support the Grounds Management Association’s (GMA) #GroundsWeek. This is an inaugural celebration week for the turf care sector.

Managed by the GMA, the turf care campaign will take place 1-7 March 2021.
It will celebrate the vital role that professional grounds staff, volunteers, and the turf sector has.
Following a difficult year for the sector, #GroundsWeek aims to showcase grounds staff and the amazing work that they do.
It also comes after a year where parks and green spaces have been valuable to the public’s health. With increased use for ‘daily exercise’ and physical activity.
To celebrate the week, British Sugar TOPSOIL will be promoting the benefits of using its Sports&Turf topdressing. This is for the repair and improvement of natural playing surfaces.
A 90/10 blend of medium to coarse sub-angular sand with British Sugar TOPSOIL’s BS3882:2015-compliant topsoil, Sports&Turf incorporates into the sward.
This increases the fertility of the root zone. It also encourages grass to regenerate, particularly in areas of heavy wear.
Andy Spetch, National TOPSOIL Manager at British Sugar TOPSOIL said:

“British Sugar TOPSOIL is delighted to be supporting the GMA’s GroundsWeek initiative. It will highlight the invaluable work carried out by professional and volunteer grounds staff.

Geoff Webb, CEO of the GMA, said:
“After a tough year, #GroundsWeek is a fantastic opportunity for every part of the sector to come together. It’s a  celebration of the hard work that’s gone on throughout the year.
“We want to inspire sports fans and the general public to realise the vital role we play. We want more people to enter the profession and lend a helping hand at pitches across the country.
