We are pleased to celebrate that George, still a director at Labman, has been awarded a BEM (British Empire Medal)for services to his community.

In 2000 George single-handedly took responsibility for raising funds to renovate, a tired and underused, Stokesley Town Hall. The campaigning raised over £300,000.

Even once the renovations were complete George was passionate in making sure the building would thrive, for another 150 years, by forming and chairing a management committee aimed at attracting groups to use the hall. Bookings increased dramatically and the Town Hall is once again a focal point and a symbol of great pride for the community.

From all at Labman and on behalf of the Stokesley community we would like to say, congratulations to George on his achievements.
