Ridgeons recently welcomed four employees to its ’25 Club’ in recognition of their continued service.
In an annual dinner held at Chesterford Research Park, the new additions joined 185 existing members to celebrate both 25 and 35 years’ of service.
The latest ’25 Club’ members came together from a number of different branches including James Norton – stock auditor, Inventory Department at Mildenhall, Gary Good – product group manager, Pampsiford, Heather Crick – admin assistant, March, and Simon Taylor – specialist sales at Nuffield Road.
Existing members, Alan Stebbings, Peter Sievewright, Paul Middleton, Andy Peach, and Shaun Allgood, all received congratulations for their 35 years of service. Gary Stroud also received a special mention for his nine years as treasurer of the club, as well as Ken Miller who has been chairman for the past year.
Each member received a personal welcome to the ’25 Club’ from Gordon Ridgeon, before family director, Amanda Smith, group deputy chairman, Johnnie Sam, and the newly appointed club president, Rachel Anderson, presented each with an inscribed pen and a framed special service certificate.
Ridgeon said: “It’s tremendous to celebrate the achievements of new and existing members of our ever growing ’25 Club’. The annual dinner continues to prove a great success, allowing us the chance to honour these employees for their long service and unquestionable loyalty.
“As a company built on relationships and with 780 employees, it remains integral to our success that we identify and celebrate the achievements of these dedicated individuals.”
