The West Bridgford store recently held its bi-annual Communications Meeting, during which the store team receive an update on the business and what the plans are for the coming period.

During this meeting, there is also an opportunity to celebrate success, and this comes in the form of their coveted Green Blood Award – a recognition of the person who embodies a set of principles that the store work to called the ‘Seven Philosophies of Team West Bridgford’. Jacob is a Spectacle Maker Apprentice who works in the store’s busy manufacturing lab and, on this occasion, was the undisputed choice to receive the award. Commenting on the reasons for Jacob’s selection, Store Partner Stephen Rogers had nothing but praise:

‘Jacob was the unanimous choice for our coveted Green Blood award. He has offered and worked his day off on multiple occasions when it was necessary, arranged training with team members off his own back to help them, the team and the lab. He has also taken on more responsibility and thrived with it, he is using his initiative to be productive and improve the lab too. This is great regardless of who it is, but even more so at this early stage of his career.’
