Yates said: “I can honestly say I have enjoyed every moment of working at Rudridge. We have quite a few members of staff who have completed 10 to 15 years’ service and beyond, which is testament to what a great place this is to work. I am looking forward to being here for plenty more years to come.”

Summerfield praised Yates for his dedication and hard work. He said: “Yates is outside in all weathers helping customers, and always has a smile on his face. He is a perfect example of the dedication and commitment of our team, which always strives to deliver the very best service.”
