Unsung hero award scooped by loyal hard-worker

03 December 2014

An East Anglian site labourer has been hailed as an Unsung Hero at a national awards ceremony.

John Bunn, known as ‘Monty’, received the accolade in The Bricks construction industry awards for his dedication to Persimmon Homes customers across Norfolk and Suffolk.

Monty joined us as a ground worker on the region’s first ever development, at Rosedale Gardens in Lowestoft in the 1970s.

Andrew Fuller, managing director at Persimmon Homes Anglia said: “Monty is probably the hardest worker we have and, at 70 years of age, he still works just as hard as the day he first started with us.

It is not unusual for Monty to be on site at 5am the morning of a handover or final inspection to ensure that everything is correct for the customer and he will tell you straight - no matter who you are - if he doesn’t believe that what you are doing is good enough or right for the company.

He whole heartedly deserves this award. His hard working attitude and determination as a site labourer to get the job done is phenomenal and he is an absolute asset to Persimmon Homes.”

The Bricks awards recognise and reward the hard work of registered developers and contractors who stand out from the crowd in delivering high quality construction and design.

The ‘Unsung Hero’ trophy is designed to reward the efforts of those who go above and beyond, but are all-too-often overlooked. The award applauds those employees who have worked long and hard to ensure deadlines are met, made sure everything runs smoothly and that the customers are satisfied.
