Former Managing and Financial Director, Tony Day, has been awarded with the British Empire Medal in recognition of his tireless work for the Norton St Phillip community.
The British Empire Medal was reintroduced in 2011 by Prime Minister David Cameron, as a means of recognising local volunteers who make a real difference in their communities.
Tony was awarded the medal on behalf of The Queen for ‘Services to the community of Norton St Phillip, Somerset’ in response to his massive contribution over a period of many years.
Tony has dedicated time to The Village Green Committee, Drama Group, helped to organise bonfire night and maintain the village green. He has also spent many years as a Church Warden and Parish Treasurer. Over the past few years, Tony has been instrumental in starting the village photography club.
Steve Vick, founder of the company, said ‘Despite a very demanding role within our company Tony has always given enormous quantities of his time to his local community. As a former resident of Norton St Phillip I can bear witness to the seemingly endless community projects in which he has been involved over the years. Tony is a most exceptionally public spirited individual who is thoroughly deserving of recognition in the form of this honour’.
After 25 years of service with Steve Vick International Tony retired in December 2015; he continues to contribute in the advisory role of Non-Executive Director.
