Webbs staff went along to the West Midland Safari Park venue near Bewdley to find out who were the stars scooping this year’s top awards.

Certificates and prizes were presented to staff to celebrate a range of training initiatives and individual and department successes including colleague of the year – voted for by staff – awarded to Rob Fowler in the Wychbold pet and wild bird department and Jared Tibbetts of Webbs, West Hagley.

Chairman Ed Webb highlighted that in 2014, 15 employees studied NVQs and 23 supervisors and managers are learning through the Webbs Leadership Academy.

He said: "This was a great awards evening and it was fantastic to see our staff get together and celebrate their achievements. I’m very proud of our staff and the WAFTAS is a wonderful way to say thank you for their dedication to Webbs."
