Westgrove Annual Awards

Celebrating our Colleagues' outstanding achievements.

The Westgrove Group were delighted to welcome colleagues from all over the country to celebrate the remarkable work they do each and every day, often going above and beyond in their work.  The Westgrove Annual Reward and Recognition Awards ceremony, held at the Village Hotel in Warrington is always an emotional and inspiring day.

We heard from guest speakers Alex Staniforth, our Westgrove Brand Ambassador who told us of his next awe inspiring challenge, British Security Industry Associations (BSIA) Andrew Cooper who gave us insight into the security industry and Retail Trusts Tom Bostock who shared information on the amazing work Retail Trust do and the support they can offer to our business.
