Congratulations Alex!

Old Westholmian Alex has won a prestigious award for her work at CHEP

One of our old girls, and daughter of our Head of English, Mrs Gibson, has just been awarded the President’s Special Award for a new machine design for the Commonwealth Handling Equipment Pool (CHEP). CHEP issues, collects, conditions and reissues pallets and containers to help manufacturers and growers to transport their products to distributors and retailers.

Alex will receive her award at a ceremony in Brussels from the company’s American President.

Alex is shown in our picture sitting opposite Mrs Gibson at the recent Old Girls’ reunion at the Royal Opera House in London.
