Phil Birtwhistle (Managing Director) and Roger Birtwhistle (Founder)
Managing Director of PGS, Phil has been part of the team since he was 14. Fully qualified in horticulture, Phil is continually bringing new ideas and developing PGS to make it the best it can be. Roger retired from the field in 2010 but acts as consultant and helps with the ongoing apprenticeship scheme that Priestgate continues to run.
Jay joined us in 2019, with his practical background as a mechanic, he has picked up the job very quickly. He is now our key landscaper, with an ever growing number of beautiful gardens that he has helped to build. We feel very fortunate to have him as part of PGS.
Jake is currently on an apprenticeship with us, and seems to be getting a good handle on what is required to be a key team player for PGS. We look forward to seeing him develop as part of our team over the next few years.
Danny joined us right before the COVID-19 lockdown and has since been given a great deal of responsibility along with his team mate James. His knowledge and working methods hold a lot of promise for the future of PGS. A very welcome addition to the team.
James joined just before the COVID-19 lockdown. He offers a great deal of experience and friendlyness to his work. James now helps to manage the maintenance side of the business and is a very welcome addition to the team.
