A site manager at a housing development in Thrapston has won a top national award for the quality of the homes they are building.

David Wilson Homes worker Gary Du Pille, who is based at their The Nurseries site, has been marked down as one of the best in the UK for his work.

Known by some as the 'Oscars of the housebuilding industry', the National House Building Council (NHBC) 'Pride in The Job Quality' awards recognise the finest site managers from around the country.

Sixty-one-year-old Gary, who is originally from London, has now picked up his third Pride in the Job Quality award.

Gary said: “I’m over the moon to hear that I have won another pride in the job award.

"Every award is a great reward, and I do not intend on stopping there. I have been in the industry for 44 years now, with 10 years as a site manager, and I still love it.

“The award is really fantastic. I must thank both the team I work with for their great efforts, and the wonderful Thrapston community.

"I must in particular thank assistant site managers Andy Trainer and David Holden, labourer Steve White and my forklift driver Ian Arthurs.”
