When Lucy met…Bill Beaumont!

Our very own EU Skills’ groupie Lucy Ritchie, Client Manager has been snapped with yet another celebrity – this time with none other than former England and Lions rugby captain and Question of Sport star, Bill Beaumont!

Hanging out with celebrities at work is becoming something of a habit for Lucy who was snapped with BBC’s The Apprentice star Nick Hewer at last year’s Energy Efficiency & Renewables Awards where the SME project scooped the Training Initiative of the Year Award.

Lucy met Bill Beaumont who owns Bill Beaumont Textiles at yesterday’s North West Shale Supply Chain Conference. Chairman Bill is the great-great-grandson of Joseph Hargreaves, the business’ founder who set up a weaving shed in Chorley Lancashire in 1888. Bill works alongside his wife Hilary, the business’ Design Director and their eldest son Daniel who is the Managing Director.
