A DEALERSHIP in Pendle has grounds for celebration after scooping a top trades award.

Colne-based GGM Groundscare, a specialist tractors supplier, has been named 'professional turfcare dealer of the year' at The Service Dealer Awards.

Judges praised the firm's extensive product knowledge and attention to customer satisfaction in presenting the prize at an Oxford ceremony.

Managing director Chris Gibson said: "The fact that they work on a nomination basis from our customers and suppliers makes this award all the more special."

The company, a Kubota Groundscare dealership, had previously secured similar honours in 2014.
