A dedicated worker from Fenland was one of ten employees welcomed into an exclusive club because of their loyal service.

Ridgeons employee John Young, who is a plumbing and counter supervisor at the timber and builders’ merchants March branch, was inducted into the company’s 25 Club, for workers who have offered 25 years or more continuous service.

He and his fellow new additions joined 157 existing members at a special dinner event to celebrate their achievements at Ridgeons Green Light Centre of Excellence in Pampisford.

Each member received a personal welcome to the 25 Club from event host Gordon Ridgeon, before they were presented with an enamelled insignia lapel badge, a specially commissioned tie, a framed special service certificate and an inscribed gift of their choice.

Director Gordon Ridgeon said: “We are delighted to be able to welcome ten new members to our ever growing 25 Club.
