Mill spreads festive cheer

Johnstons of Elgin has given employees a surprise Christmas gift with the presentation of vouchers worth £50.

Managing director Nick Bannerman told the Hawick News: “The board and shareholders have given all our 850 staff a thank you for their continued hard work and their positive attitude to constant improvement and investing in the future with training and modern apprenticeships.”

The gift ends a positive year following on from Alex Salmond’s recent opening of the firm’s training centre.
