While speaking to traffic office, Duncan has put forward and others agreed Mark Taylor Nightshift trunk driver to award Made it Happen this month. This was down to him taking upon himself as a lead nightshift driver during bad weather and heavy snow, making sure all drivers were safe, arrival and departure time advising customers when driver should arrive etc. I agree someone that I do think highly of and nothing is any trouble to him.
Aberdeen (2-man) - Ivars Brencevs
Ivars has shown an unbelievable attitude to his wor. On the weekend of the very bad snow he was in Comrie having to travel across to Auchterarder when they got stock in deep drifts so after trying to dig out his own motor he walked over a mile to farm and where he persuaded the farmer to assist him but this held him up for over 3 hours as weather deteriorated further. Rather than abandon his run, which I and B&Q would have supported, he continued and successfully completed his run arriving back at depot at 20:00 on a Saturday night. He kept all his customers updated on the situation and this was acknowledged by B&Q so will also be putting him forward for the quarterly B&Q awards. His second man also deserves credit but unfortunately due to family circumstances he had to resign his position on Monday to care for his mum.
Dundee - Ross Cumming
Ross has been selected for his willingness to always help other drivers when he has finished his own duty’s and will always come and ask if there is anything else needing done rather than wait to be told to do or assists anyone else.
Inverness - Shannon Crosbie
Shannon has assisted with the transition to Helmsdale and Kyle depots doing the 2 man works themselves that has been a new challenge with issues to resolve and she has updated both customers and drivers daily to ensure that the transition has been successful.
