The Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS) celebrated 30 years of working with Highfield at its annual conference last month, with an exchange of gifts between the two organisations.
Held on 7 and 8 May 2014 at the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh, the conference featured a ministerial address from Michael Matheson, MSP, Minister of Public Health, and heard 20 papers on a range of issues. The conference also raised £500 for the Famine Relief for Orphans in Malawi charity.
The gifts were exchanged between Jayne Sprenger and Dan McDade of Highfield, and Colin Wallace, President of REHIS, to mark the 30th anniversary of the partnership between the two organisations.
Tom Bell, REHIS Chief Executive, said, ‘We were delighted to celebrate 30 years of a positive partnership with Highfield, working on the development of materials for community training courses and on the exchange of advice and mutual support over the same period. This partnership would not have been as successful or have lasted as long without the mutual respect that the respective organisations and the individuals involved have had for each other’.
Christian Sprenger, Highfield Managing Director, said, ‘REHIS is one our oldest and most trusted partners, and has been with us since the beginning. It’s testament to the strong and productive relationship between the two organisations that we are still working closely together 30 years on, and we look forward to another 30 years of successful cooperation’.
