Our Office staff are to accompany our Pest Control Technicians for a ‘Day Out’ to get a better understanding of what they do on a day to day basis. Last week Service Coordinator, Elaine Mackenzie, spent the day with John Feaks who covers Dunkeld, Pitlochry, Aberfeldy and Blair Atholl. Elaine enjoyed her day and met a variety of customers and their pets and animals.
Afterwards Elaine said “I was very surprised how far John and I walked during the day round farms and fields. If I hadn’t been there John would have spent a large part of the day on his own too”

Perthshire Chamber of Commerce Business Star Awards 2013
On Friday 22nd November over 300 guests gathered in the Crieff Hydro Hotel for the annual Business Star Awards. The event was hosted by Stephen Leckie from the Perthshire Chamber of Commerce and sponsored GS Group. Our company were nominated for the Business Growth Award and were also sponsoring the Apprentice of the Year Award. The Company were represented at the ceremony by Directors Jimmy and Anna Graham, Ross Graham, Stuart Graham, Philip McKenna and Mark Sherriffs. We were delighted to win the Business Growth Award which then put us forward to the main award of the evening, The Business of the Year. After a tense few moments on stage Stephen Leckie read out our name and it appeared on the big screen on the stage. Despite the emotions Ross was able to say this..” This is a team award and I couldn’t be more proud of everyone that made this Business Of The Year title possible,” he said.
“To come out top among so many strong contenders is just amazing. We work hard at building the right team with similar values and work ethos to deliver the best possible product and service to our clients. I could never have imagined when the company was first set up that we would ever be named Perthshire’s top business – everyone’s hard work has really paid off and I couldn’t be more proud and pleased.”
