Last week we saw the return of the Colchester Youth Awards hosted at Colchester Institute. It was a pleasure to once again sponsor the SVC Young Entrepreneur Category. Commercial Director, Mel Carpenter presented the award to Thomas Royce – our winner for 2016.
Thomas has turned a passion for nature and gardening in to his own business “Mr Mow”, a gardening service company.
Thomas has taken the time to gain as much knowledge and additional skills as he can to develop his business idea in to reality.
Through volunteering at “Y.E.S” garden in Colchester, The Big Garden in Highwood’s and Beeleigh Abbey Gardens, he has be able to to gain additional confidence and skills in the horticulture industry.
This started whilst he was at school, and Whilst continuing to study at Colchester Institute he took paid work to allow him to gain the resources required to buy the equipment he would need for the business.
Thomas has expanded his client base and is continuing to grow. He has worked hard in making his passion his work, and has shown determination, dedication and has shown true entrepreneurial spirit in making the business a success.
