Royal Three Counties Show crowns top agricultural contractor


Dame Janet Trotter DBE HML presents the award to Patrick Gething Lewis of Gamber Cleaning Services

Herefordshire firm, Gamber Cleaning Services, of Peterstow, Ross on Wye, has been awarded ‘Agricultural Contractor of the Year’ by the Three Counties Agricultural Society.

The prestigious competition, which is sponsored by the Tallis Amos Group, is open to all agricultural contractors operating in the counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire, and recognises outstanding customer service and commitment.

The Society’s President, Dame Janet Trotter DBE, HML presented the £500 prize to Gamber’s Managing Director, Patrick Lewis, and his team on the first day of this year’s Royal Three Counties Show.

Said Mr. Lewis: “We are delighted to receive such an accolade for our enterprise, which started out just three years ago.

Adrian Griffiths and Andy Powell, in particular, have worked extremely hard to develop the business in a short space of time, and we continue to expand. This award is well-deserved recognition for the whole team.”

Gamber Cleaning Services offers a first-class service to poultry producers in and around Herefordshire in the main, but extends that service to other livestock and cereal enterprises.

Competition rules are very stringent, but Judge, Peter Rose, who is a County Director for the Society, and visited the company’s premises to assess the firm, said he had been extremely impressed with what he saw.

“This firm is extremely progressive” he said, and very enthusiastic about their business. They scored well for their professionalism, cleanliness and levels of staff training, and I was impressed with the quality of their machinery too.”
