UK-GBC have today opened nominations for the 2015 Rising Star Award.
Run in association with PRP, the award is now in its third year, and is a wonderful tribute to Mel.
Previous winners include Andrew Kinsey from Mace Group (2013) and Phil Birch from Sweett Group (2014).
The 2015 will be presented at the UK-GBC birthday party at Ecobuild next March.
For more information and to submit a nomination, please visit the Rising Star Award page on the UK-GBC website.
We will be remembering Mel with another picnic in Regents Park this summer.
Last year the rain [just about] held off, and we had an enjoyable afternoon of cheese wine and softball before retiring to the pub when it started to get chilly.
As in previous years, we will meet from midday onwards at Gloucester Green in the NE corner of Regents Park, and once again the back up in the event of poor weather will be the [partially] covered beer garden of the Edinboro Castle at the top of Mornington Terrace in Camden.
All are very welcome, and Mel’s parents and I look forward to catching up with you over a few drinks and games.
