New property and garden maintenance start up receives funding

Local resident Joel Williams has successfully received funding from the Isles of Scilly Voucher Scheme to start up his new business, Scilly Property and Gardening Services.

After talking to local residents and property owners Joel soon realised there was room in the market for an all year round maintenance and gardening service, particularly focusing on those smaller scale jobs, he set about putting his plans into action and applied for funding from the Isles of Scilly Voucher Scheme.

‘I've very grateful to the Voucher Scheme for the support that has been offered. I've found the application and claim process straight forward and efficient. Equipment and tools purchased through the Voucher Scheme are being used on a daily basis and are not only helping me to expand my customer base but also increase the services i'm able to offer.’

The business offers a variety of services to both corporate and domestic properties ranging from, lawn mowing, hedge trimming and general gardening to pressure watching and flat pack furniture assembly.

Since receiving the funding Scilly Property and Gardening Services is now open for business and is looking forward to a busy summer.
