James wins Pride of Workmanship award

James Halliday-Jones is this year’s recipient of the Rotary Club of Woy Woy Pride of Workmanship Award.
A couple of years ago, Mr Halliday-Jones joined a local family-run oyster farming and commercial fisher business which has been operating for three generations.
Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch said he was a well-deserving recipient of the award.
Beginning as a temporary employee with D and L Witchard, over Christmas, and had since flourished in his role, she said.
Mr Halliday-Jones had shown an interest in learning about the different types of fish, paying close attention to techniques used for each species while also presenting a friendly face to the community and putting his all into his workplace.
“James has shown impeccable workmanship and drive in his employment, taking every opportunity and working hard to deliver the best service to our community,” Ms Tesch said.
“The reviews online about D and L Witchard confirm the amazing work of James.”
D and L Witchard is owned and operated by Dale and Lynne Witchard.
Ms Tesch commended the Witchards.
“You can really tell just how much Dale and Lynne love our community, as they are always striving to employ locals and deliver opportunities right here on the Peninsula.”
