CONGRATULATIONS from their local MP were in order this week for a Turners Hill couple who manage a major retirement park in the village.

Christopher and Trudy Palmer were both presented with Exceptional Service Awards by Jeremy Quin MP during a special visit he paid to the park.

The award is the highest honour given by British Holiday & Home Parks Association to park staff who have made “significant and substantial” contributions to their businesses.

The park provides a peaceful rural setting for those in or near retirement

Christopher and Trudy are responsible for the day-to-day running of Turners Hill Park which is part of the family-run Berkeleyparks group of residential parks.

They have served with the company for 12 years, and were congratulated both by Jeremy Quin and  David Curson who is managing director of Berkeleyparks:

“We rely heavily on our managers to help our residents enjoy their lifestyles, and to sustain the mutually supportive atmosphere which our parks provide,” said David.

“Christopher and Trudy are always prepared to go the extra mile to give whatever assistance is needed, and to make sure that the park offers a first-class living environment.

“We’re very grateful that Mr Quin was able to take time out to visit the park and give his good wishes to two highly valued members of our team,” he added.

Turners Hill Park has more than 260 privately-owned park homes in its landscaped grounds where people in or near retirement can enjoy peaceful and well-managed surroundings.
