Janice Gunner Wins City & Guilds Medal for Excellence

Janice is delighted to announce that she's been awarded this prestigious medal for her work as a lecturer in Patchwork & Quilting at Missenden Abbey.

Although courses are no longer run there through Buckinghamshire Adult Learning, it was whilst still employed by them that she was nominated for the award.

Her nomination was supported by many letters from current and past City & Guilds students.

A real morale booster

Janice heard this amazing news whilst recovering from a very serious illness so it was a welcome boost to her morale!

Her illness meant that she was unable to accompany a group of textile enthusiasts on the itinerary she had worked hard on to Japan. Instead they were accompanied by Mandy Shaw - thanks, Mandy!

This is the virtual medal sent to Janice to inform her of her award. The actual engraved medal will be sent to her soon.
