The Castle Point Mayors Award 2018 - WINNERS ANNOUNCED!

Welcome to The Mayor's Award 2018! 

Benfleet Company Clean Green Cleaning Services has been awarded the coveted title of Castle Point Business of the Year.

The announcement came in front of 130 guests at Castle Point Borough Council’s Civic Dinner at Runnymede Hall, in April. The Apprentice of the Year Award was also announced, going to Shelby Martin of Blu Nuvo.  Clean Green Cleaning Services becomes the eleventh winner of the award, demonstrating business excellence throughout the last 12 months.

In a compelling application, Clean Green was able to showcase how back in 1989 they were among the pioneers of environmentally friendly cleaning and how it has established itself as a successful, family run business with a great reputation that delivers high quality, environmentally friendly, cleaning and maintenance services.

In a closely fought contest, Clean Green Services narrowly beat Greater Minds Ltd a technology company providing personal development and training products.
