The Worshipful Company of Builders Merchants (WCoBM) held their fifth City & Awards luncheon in March at the historic Saddlers’ Hall.
The luncheon has become a popular event in the Company’s calendar, which recognises achievements of individuals and provides a networking opportunity for Liverymen, Freemen and their guests to meet senior industry and City figures.
Prizes were presented by Master Leo Martin and Guest of Honour Sheriff Dr Christine Rigden. Prizes were awarded to four BMF Merchants for their achievements in MOL modules, three of whom were from MKM Building Supplies. MKM’s Gerard Hull won first prize with 10 MOL points and two distinctions, for which he received a tankard in cheque for £1,000. Second prize of a tankard and £500 went to Matthew Cobb of MKM for eight points, one distinction and one credit. Joint third place at five points and one distinction went to Mark Withall of MKM and Rebecca Hill of Howarth Timber, receiving £300 and a tankard and goblet.
Andrew Harries of LBS Builders Merchants was named the BMF Campus Winner. Harries registered on BMF Campus in September last year and has completed 128 e-learning courses achieving an average passing score of 82%.
The Master comments: “We congratulate all the winners on their achievements. They work extremely hard and it was a pleasure to recognise and reward their focus and determination. It was a successful afternoon in superb surroundings and a special thanks to our Guest of Honour Sheriff Dr Christine Rigden for contributing to an important event.”
