Woy Woy resident Mr Jim Coyle has received a Pride of Workmanship Award from the Rotary Club of Woy Woy in a surprise ceremony at his workplace.

Members of the club visited Narara Valley Nursery and were shown around by Mr Coyle and assistant manager Ms Vicky Martin.

The Rotary club’s vocational service chair Ms Kay Walker surprised Mr Coyle with the award alongside a group of fellow Club members.

She said the award recognised his “great attitude to work, willingness to contribute to his team and going out of his way to help visitors with plant choice and after-care”.

In addition to his work at the nursery, he was also a carer for his mum.

Ms Walker said Mr Coyle had been working at the nursery for seven years, initially gaining work experience there while he was studying horticulture at Ourimbah TAFE.

Ms Martin said he had several responsibilities including stock maintenance, nursery duties and customer service.

She said the award was well-deserved for Jim’s continual efforts to help customers.

 “He should be very proud of himself.”
