We made four special awards recognising our top performers in recognition of their achievements during the year at our annual Christmas party.
Site manager Joe Price scooped two of the four trophies – he was named Employee of the Year and staff also voted for him to receive the Colleague of the Year award.
Apprentice of the Year went to accounts assistant Rhianne Duggin and the Neil Holding Award, which is given in memory of the our former quality manager who died after a battle with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, was presented to site manager Andrew Owen. It recognises an employee who goes above and beyond in their role and was chosen by the directors.
We also used the event to raise funds for the Harry Johnson Trust, our 2019-20 charity partner with a fundraising raffle. The funds will be added to the sum of more than £5,000 that we raised earlier this year by completing a challenge to run, ride and row for 24 hours in aid of the organisation that supports children with cancer and their families.
Managing director Steven Owen said: “It has been an award winning year for us as we won the 2019 Shropshire Chamber Company of the Year award in June and our dedicated staff was one of the key reasons why we won.
“We have a very hard working team and it is always hard to single out particular people but Joe, Rhianne and Andrew were very deserving winners.”
