Presentations and Exhibitions
Jay Blanchard has impressed his employer Ian Gordon of Gordons Autos. Ian supported him in going for a prestigious award from the Grimsby Institute. Ian and Jay were initially dismayed when they got to the ceremony as Jay’s name didn’t appear on the list to be presented with anything! Ian then realised that it was because Jay was receiving a higher award following the presentation.
Jay was presented with the Helen Gott award, given in commemoration of Helen’s life and contributions. Jay is rightfully proud of his award and Ian too is proud of his apprentice Jay. Tom, Ian’s first apprentice and son, is currently in Germany at Mercedes on a college exchange visit. Jay was left to help create a new floor on an Alpha Romero single handled. It looks like both young men are on the road to becoming excellent mechanics and Ian should take some credit for this!
