Double Accolade for Edinburgh Enterprise

I had the great delight to visit the Edinburgh headquarters of Babcock LGE Process, part of the Babcock International Group, to present two ‘Queen’s Awards for Enterprise’ on behalf of Her Majesty as the Lord Lieutenant of Edinburgh.

The Queen’s Awards are only given to businesses that can demonstrate the highest level of excellence and Babcock is one of just six businesses to receive two accolades this year. I presented both awards on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, recognising Babcock’s remarkable success building international ties and market-leading innovation. All employees at Babcock should be proud of this fantastic team achievement.

I’m also looking forward to presenting another Award on behalf of the Queen later this week…a very special voluntary organisation will receive an accolade at my Community Garden Party at Lauriston Castle on Friday!

Recognising the achievements of some of Edinburgh’s brightest and best, bravest and devoted is a real highlight of my job. The Garden Party will be a celebration of the city and its unsung (until now!) heroes and myself and the Lady Provost are excited for what will be our biggest bash yet.

More to follow tomorrow!
