A TECHNICIAN at Bridgwater Ford has won an ‘Unsung Hero’ award.

Mark Irish has been named best workshop technician in the inaugural Unsung Heroes awards compiled by Motor Trader magazine.

Chris Yoxon, managing director of Foray Motor Group, parent company of Bridgwater Ford, said that too often people were ready to overlook the dedication beyond the levels of normal service that so many staff were willing to give.

He said: “We entered Mark and two staff from other Foray dealerships. For Mark and one of the others to beat every entry from across the country shows the exceptional staff we and our customers are lucky to have at Foray Motor Group.”
