From builder’s site to ballroom - construction manager wins three awards

CONSTRUCTION manager Roger Griss has a spring in his step after winning three awards at a ballroom dancing competition.

While Roger spends his days overseeing Bovis Homes’ new development, The Green in Cambourne, in his spare time he is a talented ballroom dancer, having spent the past year making his way to the top of competitive ballroom dancing with his wife and dance partner, Annette.

Roger and Annette first took up ballroom dancing six years ago, inspired by seeing other couples take to the floor on their regular cruise holidays.

Roger said: “Admittedly, it’s not the type of hobby you would normally associate with someone who spends their day with builders on a construction site – the glamorous world of ballroom dancing with the unique hand-made glitzy costumes, grand venues, and intricate choreography is a far cry from the hard hats, bricks and diggers I see during my working day. That said, Bovis has been really supportive over the past year, which has allowed me to train for and attend competitions up and down the country.”
