I’m super excited today as the public vote has now opened for the Digital Awards Champions – and you can vote for this blog to win!

I was over the moon when my blog won the Gold Award at the Essex Digital Awards in the Business Blog category back in April. Everyone here at the NEPP was so pleased to hear how impressed the judges were with this blog and how it manages to make a difficult subject fun, engaging and understandable.

All the Gold Award winners from the Digital Award Schemes 2016 are now in the running to be overall Champion for their category. Your votes will now choose an overall Champion for each category from the awards that have taken place in Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Milton Keynes and Surrey.

I’m so pleased that our customers are finding this blog useful and I would like to ask you to cast your vote for this blog. To vote, simply go to www.thedigitalawards.co/champions/blog-business, select North Essex Parking Partnership (Essex) and click the ‘submit vote’ button. The vote will close at 5pm on 20 January 2017.

Happy voting and fingers crossed!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year and enjoyed our Christmas song.

Over the Christmas period, some of you may have heard or read about one of my colleagues, Bob Brookes, who saved a member of the public’s life whilst he was at work before Christmas.

Bob has worked for the NEPP for nearly 5 years and was working in Witham when he became aware that someone had collapsed in a nearby shop. As an ex-Army medical Technician, Bob rushed to help the casualty who was suffering a heart attack. Bob and the shop’s first aider performed first aid and CPR for nearly 10 minutes before the paramedics arrived.

The casualty was later taken to Basildon and Thurrock Hospital and is now recovering at home.

Everyone here at the NEPP is incredibly proud of Bob and we’re really pleased to hear that the gentleman in question is recovering well.

Well done Bob!
