Two Llanfyllin Highways Department workers have been honoured for fighting the coldest winter for a generation to keep Montgomeryshire on the move.Powys County Council award winners
Temperatures of -15 and thick snow for weeks on end played havoc to the local roads but the work carried out by Gareth Jones and David Evans from Llanfyllin Highways has been singled out by Powys County Council at their Winter Heroes Award.
Chief Executive Jeremy Patterson said the pair had gone ‘over and above’ the call of duty during the extreme weather conditions which at times saw the area’s temperatures plunge lower than Siberia’s.
“At a time when public sector workers are in the media spotlight, the Powys County Council Winter Heroes Award brings into sharp focus how highly motivated and conscientious our workforce is.” said Mr. Patterson. “The nominations were judged by the Chairman of Council and myself and we both found it a difficult and humbling task.”
The Llanfyllin pair finished runners-up in the ‘Best Team Effort’ category behind the winner which was the council’s Highways Department for their overall efforts across Powys.
Peter Shuker, who was on call in Newtown’s vehicle maintenance department over the Festive Period and worked non-stop, won the Individual Award.
