A CONGRESBURY hotel worker has beaten 78,000 rivals in 25 countries to win a hotly-contested award.

Jon Peek works as the assistant restaurant manager within the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House.

This week, he won the company’s Spirit Of Care award in recognition of his ‘exemplary service and commitment to both guests and colleagues’. The effort Jon puts in for his colleagues was demonstrated by the fact that last year he took a week’s holiday to plan an elaborate Narnia-themed Christmas party for his fellow workers.

Cadbury House’s general manager Colin Badcock said: “We are lucky to have such a hard working person as part of our team that does so much for the hotel.

“Jon takes on many other commitments which go beyond his role and he has been using his diverse range of skills in helping organise charitable events going on at the hotel.

“To top this off Jon is always cheerful and can always put a smile on everyone’s face around the building.

“This award is really prestigious and the fact that another member of staff ,Wendy Stevens, won the top prize last year really goes to show the level of talent we have here at Cadbury House.
