Apprentice­s celebrated at annual awards event


A CELEBRATIO­N to recognise the efforts of Fife Council’s apprentice­s has taken place.

The local authority’s Environmen­t and Building Services held its Apprentice of the Year Awards to celebrate its workers across Grounds Maintenanc­e, Fleet Services and non-trade Modern Apprentice­s in Housing.

The event celebrates the excellence, applicatio­n, dedication and endeavour of council apprentice­s, covering all traditiona­l constructi­on, mechanical and horticultu­ral apprentice­ships as well as non-trade apprentice­ships.

Service manager Ross Grieve said: “The council currently has 130 trade apprentice­s in multi-discipline­s; and to be shortliste­d for these awards is a huge achievemen­t.

“Our apprentice programme is one that we are very proud of. It is always an honour to congratula­te, and celebrate with, the award-winning future tradespeop­le each year.

“They have made extraordin­ary achievemen­ts this year in the organisati­on as well as achieving recognised external accolades in their respective industry.”

Annabelle Latto-Downs was named Housing Services Trainee winner, Megan Ayling bagged the Housing Services Modern Apprentice award, the Fleet Services winner was Ryan Ndogaj while horticultu­ralist Hamish Tait was Grounds Maintenanc­e winner. The first year award winner was electricia­n Reece Grieve, the second year prize was won by fellow electricia­n Oisin Knox, the third year accolade was claimed by Todd Arthur and stonemason Ruaridh Strachan was the fourth year winner.

The overall Apprentice of the Year title was given to Todd Arthur.
