TEEING-UP SUPPORT FOR JUNIOR GOLF
GRAHAM Environmental Services has announced a three year sponsorship package for one of the top events in Scottish junior golf.
We are proud to be backing Perth and Kinross County Golf’s “Race to The Castle” summer series.
And once again we are supporting Perthshire golfer Bradley Neil, with the company name emblazoned on his Challenge Tour bag.
Director Stuart Graham said: “We are delighted to be associated with this popular series, which encourages young golfing talent across Perth and Kinross.
“We supported Bradley last season when he made history by becoming the first Big County player to reach The European Tour for decades.
“Hopefully a series like this will help youngsters follow in his footsteps.
“The Castle Course at St Andrews is one of Scotland’s finest challenges and will be a suitably prestigious venue for the finale on Sunday, October 20.”
Perth and Kinross County Golf secretary Alan Cargill welcomed the company’s backing for the “Race to The Castle.”
“We are delighted to welcome Graham Environmental Services as our sponsor for the next three years,” he said.
“The company’s ties to The Castle have helped pave the way to securing an exciting venue for the showpiece finale, hard on the heels of The Dukes and Kingsbarns.
“The carrot of playing iconic courses offers a great incentive for the youngsters and ensures the series is the envy of areas across Scotland.”
Courses in the series include Craigie Hill, Alyth, Muckhart, Comrie, Murrayshall, King James VI, Blairgowrie, Auchterarder, Kinross, Strathmore, Milnathort, Pitlochry, St Fillans, Dunning, Ladybank, Dunkeld and Birnam, North Inch and Crieff.

CHAMPIONS of Scotland!
CHAMPIONS of Scotland!
That’s our proud boast after the Graham Environmental Services team captured the prestigious Business Fives title at Glasgow’s Soccerworld.
MD Ross Graham and the squad had already been crowned Tayside champions and after an impressive 15-game run the lads saw off Story Contracting 4-2 in a hard fought final.
Nearly 80 businesses entered the competition organised by Business Fives and insider.co.uk, which has raised around £10,000 for charity.
Tagged “The Rat Catchers,” the team’s fantastic efforts saw our nominated charities Cash for Kids and Downs Syndrome Scotland share the £1500 prize-money.
Ross said: “It was a brilliant event and very well organised. We enjoy our fives and the lads were superb. They did us proud.
“We were delighted to progress from the Tayside event backed by the Dundee and Angus Chamber to the Glasgow finals and it was great to come home with the trophy.
“Even better, we were pleased to split the winning cheque between Cash for Kids and Downs Syndrome Scotland. It’s a great way to top off our 25th anniversary celebrations.”
Craig McFadden’s goal scoring performance was singled out by former Rangers and Brighton striker Gordon Smith for the man of the match award. Former East Fife centre Ross and our current Montrose and ex-St Johnstone midfielder Martyn Fotheringham, with a double, were also on target.
The squad skippered by Ross featured fellow director Phil McKenna, Fotheringham, McFadden, Neil Mackay, Stewart Sheed, Phillip McLagan, Jamie Graham and Chic Campbell.

TOUR STAR BRADLEY WELCOMES LOCAL BACKING
EUROPEAN Tour professional Bradley Neil has welcomed grassroots support in his rookie season rubbing shoulders with the world’s best golfers.
He was speaking at Blairgowrie Golf Club, where he was being presented with his own parking space in recognition of becoming the first Perth and Kinross player for nearly 40 years to secure a Tour card.
Bradley’s bag carries the Graham Environmental Services logo this year and everyone in the team is keeping an eye on his progress.
He said: “Getting my own parking space is a lovely gesture by the club. I have been a member here since I was eight and they have done so much for me, including honorary membership for winning The Amateur at Royal Portrush.”
Bradley admits support on the home front has boosted his confidence, with group directors Ross and Stuart Graham and Phil McKenna long-time supporters.
“I’ve had support from TaylorMade and Adidas since I was a youngster but it’s been great to have the backing of local businesses like Graham Environmental Services and Lamb and Gardiner,” said Bradley.
“Blair isn’t a big place and it is special to have support from companies in and around the town. I’m in a relationship with people I trust and they know me well. They were there for me long before I turned pro.
“Phil caddied for me at The Masters and Stuart has been a big part of my life ever since I started golfing at three years old. Ross has been a big support for a decade and more.
“They have never put pressure on me and I know they are there for me. It meant a lot that they got on board by sponsoring my bag on Tour.”
Blairgowrie club captain Brian Wesencraft said: “We wanted to recognise Bradley’s latest achievement, which certainly enhances the reputation of the golf club. Members are proud of what he has done in his career and at just 22 we hope to be following his progress for years to come.”

25th Anniversary Charity Ball
Saturday 10th February 2018 – Perth Racecourse
WE had a ball – quite literally – celebrating the 25th anniversary of Graham Environmental Services!
And thanks to our staff and many big-hearted clients and business contacts we hit our £25,000 target to mark the big year and boost three great charities, CHAS – which we have supported for many years – Scottish Huntington’s Association and Tayside Children with Cancer and Leukaemia.
It was a special occasion for Jimmy and Anna, who founded the family business back in 1993, and company directors Ross, Stuart and Phil McKenna.
Before dancing the night away to top band Fever, guests at the Perth Racecourse venue were surprised, and delighted, by an appearance by The Singing Waiters.
Auctioneer Matthew McNaughton helped tease out bids totalling more than £6000, charity volunteers assisted with the Silent Auction and m/c Gordon Bannerman kept the night moving along.
Special guest and MSP John Swinney congratulated the company on an extraordinary record of “reliability, quality service and growth.”
He said: “Graham Environmental is a credit to its founders, Anna and Jimmy, to its directors, its staff, Perthshire and to Scotland.
“The company has been fuelled by the founders’ values of honesty, integrity and excellent customer service.
“Those values have been taken forward by their sons and fellow directors, Ross and Stuart, and by all of the staff, creating one of Perthshire’s most dynamic companies.
“Throughout these 25 years, the directors and staff have also thought of others and have raised substantial sums of money for charity and this anniversary event is no exception.”
Managing director Ross said: “The Charity Ball was a fantastic finale to our 25th anniversary celebrations and it’s brilliant to have reached our fundraising target. The support we have enjoyed from staff, clients and the business community has been amazing.”
