Lynn solicitors Fraser Dawbarns said farewell to their long-standing colleague Norman Davis when he retired recently after a career with the firm spanning 48 years.
When he announced his retirement, he suggested that a donation to Prostate Cancer UK would be a good idea, and so a collection was made at the office and sent to the charity.
In addition Fraser Dawbarns LLP are paying for Norman and his wife, Valerie, to enjoy a meal at Rick Stein’s restaurant, so that they can celebrate his retirement together.
Norman’s last day at work coincided with the Fraser Dawbarns Charity Golf Day, at Tydd St Giles Golf Course, so Norman spent his last afternoon of employment playing golf. At the end of the event, David Ball, who had worked with Norman for about 39 years, gave an amusing and generous speech about Norman’s contribution to the firm.
Tony Cheetham, managing partner of Fraser Dawbarns said: “Norman’s dedication was second to none. On his last day of employment, he was in the office at 7.30am and seeing clients. He has made an immense contribution to Fraser Dawbarns and we all wish him a long and happy retirement.”
Norman is planning to spend his retirement enjoying his hobbies of golf and gardening, playing with his grandchildren and travelling with Valerie.
He became office manager in 1984 but also worked with the county court, cashiers, probate and conveyancing.
