When an order was received for delivery to co-ordinates 50°02'45.30" North 1°21'54.41" East Rolawn knew it was for somewhere out of the ordinary and they were right. The order was from the France area Commonwealth War Graves Commission for delivery to Mont Huon Military Cemetery, Le Treport, just outside Dieppe.

Keith Lakey, Horticultural Manager at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission commented “The cemetery is currently being completely renovated over 2 years, all the headstones and supporting beams are being replaced and the Commission’s gardeners are reinstating the horticulture afterwards. The first phase of headstone replacement is now complete; phase 2 will take place this autumn. We selected Medallion turf as we know the quality and service from Rolawn supports the commissions’ stringent standards. The final phase will be circa 3000m2 which will be done next spring.”

Jonathan Hill, Sales & Marketing Director at Rolawn commented “We are very proud of our association with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and thanks to our unique patented Profresh® system, which extends turf shelf life, we can confidently export turf that will arrive in excellent ‘as harvested’ condition”.
