Lindsay Hardy

Managing Director

Favourite Part of Your Job – I have worked for Knotweed Services (UK) Ltd for over 3 years now. I started with the business as an administrator and worked my way up into various roles, account manager, senior account manager and Managing Executive. I am pleased to announce that in February 2023 myself and Clive Brooker were given a fantastic opportunity to join the board of directors along side Alan and Lorraine Hicks.

During the last three years with the business I have enjoyed offering reassuring advise to all clients and assisting clients with their concerns and worries surrounding Japanese Knotweed. I am very passionate about this business and look forward to the coming successful years.

Personal Life – During my spare time I enjoy spending quality time with my partner, socialising and eating out at nice restaurants. We have nice weekends away and days out making happy memories together.

I also enjoy spending money on fashion and cosmetics (too much in fact 🙂 )

I also drive my neighbours crazy as I have a love for music and singing which has been a hobby of mine since I was a young child. I have sung with bands over the years in pubs, clubs, children’s parties and corporate events covering lots of different types of music.

Clive Brooker

Managing Director

For the last 18 months I have been the Operations Director for Knotweed Services (UK) Ltd, in February 2023 myself and my colleague where given the opportunity to join the board of directors at Knotweed Services (UK) Ltd.

This was a very welcome promotion from within, that I am so very grateful for and I look forward to driving the business forward with my colleagues.

I came across knotweed back in 2000 whilst working on contracts part time for a services company.

I cut my teeth full time as a supervisor on the commonwealth games knotweed contract in Glasgow, with almost 21 years (15 full time), myself and my team of experienced technicians, with the backup from the office have all the experience you need to remediate any land with knotweed or other non native invasive species present.

I’m happily married with 2 daughters, and they are my everything, in my spare time I can either be found restoring my VW collection or give me a tent and some water and I’ll either be kayaking, stand up paddle boarding or catching some surf with my family.

A spend a great deal of what spare time is left, rescuing and safe housing various animals that require lots of TLC from their previous homes, at the moment I am working very closely with a Parrot charity (Avian Angels Parrot Rescue) and currently safe house 3 different species of Parrots.

Its great knowing every day is different with unique circumstances when it comes to each client.

I love that the team we have is so supportive and always willing to lend a helping hand. We all share a common vision of delivering the best service in the industry which creates a positive and productive work culture. I am grateful for the opportunity to work here and look forward to using my past account management experience to progress me further in the business.

Favourite Part of Your Job – My job is always changing & evolving. There are so many different elements to my role, it certainly keeps me on my toes. It’s great how everybody at Knotweed Services shares the same vision and is dedicated to being the best in the industry. This truly creates a family environment where everybody is there for each other. My job involves interacting and communicating with people daily, as we offer 5-year herbicide treatment plans, I have got to know customers very well, they may not realise it, but they are a big factor to why I also love my job.

Personal Life – My life took on a whole new meaning when my baby girl arrived in 2021. It amazes me how someone so little can teach you so much. Me and my partner love to go on cruises, its great stress-free way to explore different places. We are very excited to take our daughter on her first one later this year. I also have a dog – Yogi bear, he is a bundle of energy and certainly keeps us all very active.

Daniel Baxendale

Operations Manager

Favourite part of your job – As the Operations Director I have to say that the most rewarding part of my job is completing a project no matter how big or small on time, within budget and to a very high standard. Satisfying my management team within Knotweed Services and most importantly our Clients.

My favourite part of my job is working with the fabulous team that I do and that goes right the way through from the owners, office staff, management and the lads I have with me on site.

Seeing some amazing parts of the UK along the way is an added bonus too.

Personal Life – In my spare time I like to visit friends and family, go on holidays and weekends away and failing that you will find me in front of the TV somewhere watching the football.

Favourite Part of Your Job – My favourite part of any job is to reassure the client and to make them feel at ease. Japanese knotweed is a very invasive plant and can cause a lot of stress. There is nothing more fulfilling than reassuring our client’s that it is treatable, and we will act quickly to deal with the problem.

Personal Life – On a personal note I enjoy travelling as much as I can, exploring different countries and cities with lots of history. I also have an interest in different sports including football and formula 1 and ride outs on my motorbike whenever I get the chance.
