Following the November PAGB merit awards adjudication held at Kegworth, Alastair Moore was successful in gaining the Credit (CPAGB )award. This national event was hosted by N&EMPF on this occasion. Full details of the awards can be seen on the latest PAGB update, available on the PAGB links on our website.
The standard for Credit was high with around 70% of the 62 entrants being successful.
Well done to Alastair for gaining this well-deserved recognition, that reflects his commitment and ability. At some future point in the programme we hope that Alastair will be reflecting on the how to approach this award, and the stages above that are awaiting him.
