A FELPHAM father has been honoured for being a great role model.
Michael Seggie, 27, from Felpham has been recognised by his employer Securitas UK for his work in the local community at the company’s community awards where he received the ‘service to the community’ award.
Michael, a retail area manager in charge of security at Sainsbury’s stores across Sussex, is a petty officer with the Sea Cadet Corps and, as an instructor, spends much of his spare time sharing his skills and knowledge with the young cadets.
Zone profit protection manager at Sainsbury’s, David Houghton, who nominated Michael, said: “Michael’s role at Sainsbury’s is very demanding.
“He is always on call to help out and often has to deal with out-of-hours situations, but he never complains.
“The work he does with the sea cadets is very important to him. He gets totally immersed in everything they do and it’s impossible to measure the benefits the young cadets get from him.
“He is very much a role model, which must not be underestimated.”
Michael is also bringing up his young son Jay and supporting his wife Kim, who works at the Sainsbury’s Chichester store.
Securitas country president, Brian Riis Nielsen, said: “This award recognises exceptional service to the community and we felt Michael fully deserved it.”
