Meet The Family

The Colins family are ambassadors of The Amenity Forum and the Get Moving educational campaign.  The family were created as part of the awareness campaign GetMoving which was born in October 2016, as part of an industry wide initiative to educate the public, shareholders and the wide community on why the amenity industry is vital.

By following the Colins family through their everyday lives, you will see how the simplest of activities that we take for granted are affected and touched by the amenity sector. Visit the “Meet the Colins” area of the website, to find out where and how amenity affects you.  

Why Amenity Matters

Amenity affects all of us, every day of our lives. Whether you are visiting a park, playing golf or football, simply driving to work or taking the train. Without amenity, none of these things would be possible. 

So, what is amenity? Amenity is a sector that ensures that the roads, rails, streets, parks and sports grounds are maintained so that weeds, pest and diseases are controlled in an effective manner. The amenity forum; whom own this website are a UK initiative that promote best practice of weed, pest and disease control within the sector. They encourage safe and healthy amenity areas for the public and high standards.
