The Textile Centre of Excellence’s Annual Awards Presentation Ceremony, held on 25 November 2016, saw local Members of Parliament Jason McCartney MP and Tracy Brabin MP talk about the strength of UK manufacturing post-Brexit. The MPs highlighted the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the skills sector.

ABC Awards was once again proud to sponsor The Textile Centre’s annual showpiece event. The annual event celebrates the achievements of learners and this year saw achievement certificates handed to all apprentices, including 19 learners that had achieved their Manufacturing Textiles and Apparel qualifications.

President of the Huddersfield Textile Society, Mrs Nicola Redmore, also presented three learners with the special ‘Learner of the Year’ awards for Intermediate, Advanced and Technical disciplines.

Other awards winners included local textile worker Carla Norfolk, of Luxury Fibres and Yarns, who received the Lord Barnby Award for Services to the Wool Industry by the Worshipful Company of Woolmen and Meltham based, Camira Fabrics Ltd, received the Training Company of Year Award.

This year also saw The Textile Centre recognise the passing of founding Director, Chris Antich, by awarding the Chris Antich Inspiration Award to Lucy Eccles of Camira Fabrics.

Commenting on the success of awards ceremony, Bernadette Done, ABC Awards Business Development Manager said:

“This annual event at The Textile Centre in Huddersfield is always a pleasure to attend, it showcases the strength of feeling and support for manufacturing and it’s wonderful to see the learners and their employers rewarded for their hard work and dedication.”
