Stena Line Has Won ‘Best Ferry Operator’ At The Scottish Passenger Association Awards

Stena Line, the leading ferry company, is celebrating another successful awards win after scooping the ‘Best Ferry Company’ title at the Scottish Passenger Awards, held at the Glasgow Hilton Hotel.

The win at the SPAA event, which was attended by 600 industry professionals from all over the UK, follows the company’s success at the at Northern Ireland Travel and Tourism Awards last month, where Stena Line walked away with the ‘Best Ferry/Shipping Company’ accolade for a record sixteenth time.

The continued success of the Belfast to Stranraer ferry route marks the end of a busy year for Stena Line, one which saw the opening of a new state of the art passenger terminal in Belfast and continued discussion with regards to the building of a new Scottish port at Old House Point near Cairnryan.

Stena Line’s Route Manager, Paul Grant, is delighted at the company’s double awards win.

“As always, it was very satisfying to take home the ‘Best Ferry/Shipping Company’ award from the recent NI Travel News event but to also come away with the equivalent accolade from the Scottish Passenger Association Awards is a real bonus after what has been an extremely busy year for Stena Line on the Belfast – Stranraer route,” Paul said.

“All our staff in every area of the business put in a tremendous effort to ensure that we have maintained the highest possible standards of customer care throughout a very a exciting year for Stena Line that has seen the opening of our fantastic new facility in Belfast and the refit of the Stena Line HSS,” continued Paul. “We are very proud of the quality of service we provide and it is wonderful to see our hard work recognised on both sides of the Irish Sea. I would like to thank all those who voted for Stena Line on both occasions,” he added.

Braidwood Associates Has Teamed Up With Heart Of Midlothian Football Club To Make A Special Donation To Busoga College Mwiri, In Jinja, Uganda

Braidwood Associates, Traffic Planning and Traffic Engineering Services, team up with Heart of Midlothian Football Club to provide soccer strips to Busoga College Mwiri, in Jinja, Uganda

Braidwood Associates, leading independent Traffic Planning and Traffic Engineering Services consultancy, has linked up with the African school through the Graduate Transportation Modeller, Grant K. Rugarama. Grant went to the school as a child and wanted to give something back to his homeland. The Ugandan was quick to identify a link with his own heroes, the current Hearts manager Csaba Laszlo and midfielder David Obua. The Hearts manager was formerly manager of the Ugandan team and David Obua is one of the country’s best players.

Hearts star Obua said: “I heard of Grant’s plan and I thought it was a great idea. Both the manager and I were happy to help him with a donation of full team kit for his school. His company Braidwood Associates came to the club and we were happy to help. In Uganda things can be difficult in certain areas in terms of sporting equipment and sports clothing and I have no doubt that the children at Grant’s former school will be delighted with the gift.”

Richard Braidwood, managing director, Braidwood Associates, said: “We have worked in most corners of the world advising on traffic management and infrastructure projectsand when Grant asked if there was something we could do to help his former school I was happy to help. We obviously both know what a big club Hearts is and when we approached the club to agree this deal both Csaba and David were very keen to help us promote the agreement. Grant has contributed a lot to Braidwood Associates and this seemed a great way to help him meet his heroes while also helping his former school.”

Braidwood Associates has supplied $2000 worth of Hearts soccer strips to the school.
