WEST NORFOLK: Council stalwarts receive long service honours
Dozens of West Norfolk Council workers have been honoured for giving decades of service to the local community.
A total of 42 staff received long-service awards for 10, 20 or 30 years with the authority in a ceremony at the Lynn Town Hall last Wednesday.
Council leader Nick Daubney said: Like any organisation, we rely on the expertise and commitment of our staff.
“The awards ceremony is a way of thanking staff for their efforts and acknowledging the role they play in delivering high quality services.”
Among those receiving awards were deputy chief executive David Thomason, who joined the council back in 1982, and printroom assistant Philip High, who has also completed 30 years of service.
Mr Thomason said: “The opportunities to develop my career, the changing nature of the role and the support of both colleagues and members have made this a really stimulating job and now I’m looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.”
Among the recipients of 20-year awards was sports development manager Roger Partridge.
He said: “I’ve met and worked with so many inspiring people from local organisations and the community as well as colleagues from the council.
“Together I hope we’ve been able to make a real difference to people in the area.”
