On Monday 19th March the St Ives Branch Manager of Ridgeons, Lynn McGhee, was recognised for her excellent grades achieved while studying for a City & Guilds accredited professional qualification.
The Sheriff of London, Neil Redcliffe, presented Lynn with her award at the prestigious Worshipful Company of Builders’ Merchants’ City and Awards Luncheon in London, after completing her second year on the Manchester Online Learning (MOL) diploma in Building & Timber in January.
Open to students only working for businesses which are members of the Builders’ Merchants Federation (BMF), Lynn and other high-achieving students were nominated by the organisation. She received the prize for her consistent high grades throughout her final year of study. Lynn had already won an award at the annual event in 2017 after attaining outstanding marks for her first year.
Ridgeons funded her course, making her the first company colleague to secure the qualification. Normally completed over three years, Lynn finished the course early with multiple distinctions.
Commenting on her accolade, Lynn said: “It was an honour to attend the Worshipful Company of Builders’ Merchants’ City and Awards luncheon again this year, and to be recognised for my hard work for two years running.
“I would like to say a special thanks to Ridgeons for all of their support and indeed for my ongoing professional development. I am enjoying applying my knowledge in my job, which is helping to enhance our branch’s expertise and customer service.”
The Worshipful Company promotes training and education for builders’ merchants and fundraising for a number of charities.
