Melville chief executive John McMorrow said: “In what has been a tough year for many of our customers, demands on the service have been exceptional, but Andrew and John have delivered while also doing the additional work needed to demonstrate they meets the Standard’s stringent requirements.”

He added: "We’re delighted that the Scottish Government continues to recognise this through Scottish National Standard accreditation.”
