Nina Lockyer and Thomas Palfreyman at the event in Olympia, London
Nina Lockyer of Flora-Tec received eFIG’s Lifetime Achievement Award at their Annual Awards Ceremony held in London
Nina was rewarded for her outstanding contribution to the industry over 37 years of service to the industry.
“Having had such a long and interesting career within the industry (and it’s not over yet) to received the lifetime achievement award from efig was a real thrill,” Nina told The Landscaper.
“I felt most honoured and so lucky to think that I have had the privilege of working in what I consider to be one of the best industries with some of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet.
There are very few industries where your competitors treat you with respect and applaud your achievements as well as providing healthy competition. “
During the evening, eFIG Chairman Thomas Palfreyman presented a total of 52 awards to members in recognition of their excellent standards of work in the categories of design and installation, maintenance and for technician excellence. That is an almost 50% increase in the number of Awards for members on last year.
The Dinner and Awards followed the first day of the new trade show LANDSCAPE. Chairman of eFIG, Thomas Palfreyman was pleased with the success of the events, “The entire event has been a success. This Show has expanded previous shows into a whole new event for all sectors of the industry not just interior landscapers. We are extremely pleased with the reception the show and the seminar programme has been given by visitors.”
