“These awards are all down to their hard work, determination and the pride they take in their roles. It isn’t easy to build a team of fantastic individuals who you can trust to represent your family name, but we are incredibly lucky to have a team who embodies our family values to the core. So to each member of Team FG past and present who have helped shape our business into the great family business that it is today, thank you!”
