Firstly, in October we were delighted that Gow’s got awarded Highland Business Award for Best Family Business 2017 followed the next week by a Highly Commended for our work in Developing the Young Workforce.
We thought we had done really well this year, Then the biggest surprise, we were awarded Best Rural Family Business at the Scottish Family Business Awards last week.
Wullie and Sandra had been invited to attend the awards in Glasgow as Gow’s had been nominated.
They were delighted that our company and our loyal, hard-working team at Gow’s Lybster Limited were nationally recognised for the work they do and that the company’s dedication and professionalism are acknowledged.
We are approaching the end of what has been a busy year and indeed a successful business year, however, we would not want to let this national recognition of our company pass without acknowledging the considerable contribution our late colleague Ben Butler made to the company.
We were all deeply saddened by his sudden passing in June this year and he is and will be fondly remembered by us all.
We have kept in regular contact with Ben’s family and we hope they recognise the significant contribution Ben made to our company. The standards and work ethic he set are realised within this award and we are thinking of them all, particularly at this time of year
We close down on Friday the 22nd December to give ourselves a well-earned rest and reopen again on Monday 9th January 2018
We would like to take the opportunity to wish all our Clients, Suppliers and our fantastic Gows team and their families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and look forward to the next adventures in 2018
Stay safe and have a great holiday!
