Once a year the Clutha District comes together for our very own "Training and Development Awards"
More than 100 people gathered at the Rosebank Lodge to highlight the achievements of 17 people who have excelled in their workplace.
A total of 12 different industries were represented with everything from healthcare, to dairy to trades, construction and accountancy.
We are friendly bunch here in Clutha who give our people a well deserved pat on the back and round of applause (oh and a certificate) for their hard graft, desire and dedication to learn new skills.
The companies also deserve a big thank you for supporting their staff and helping them wherever and whenever possible.
The Mayor in full regalia was joined by former TV star and all round character Ruth Ratcliffe (Clutha Youth Manager) to add a bit of razzmatazz to the evening where both the tipple and tucker flowed freely.
All in all it really is a wonderful reflection of Clutha at its best! Real People, Real Companies, Real Success!
If you are training to get a new qualification then come join us next November. Also businesses who are rightly proud of your employees efforts go on become part of something special.
