On 23rd June Lord Lieutenant of Northamptionshire Mr David Laign visited our factory to present to us our Queens Award for Enterprise and International Trade on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen.
Upon Arrival the Lord Lieutenant was taken on a tour around our factory and shown the process of how a Cheaney Shoe is created.
After being taken on a tour all of the factory staff were gathered together to witness the presentation of this prestigious award. Before presenting our award the Lord Lieutenant congratulated everyone for their part played as a skilled workforce, he also thought it would be fitting if one of the workers came forward to receive the award. Mr Paul Burkes and his son Tom were chosen to receive the beautiful cut crystal glass bowl.
To celebrate this momentous occasion alongside with the 130th anniversary of Joseph Cheaney & Sons all members of staff were taken to Rushton Hall.
