Paula Hollingworth, Ruskington Area Leader, celebrated her 40th year with the business this week for which she was awarded a long service award and will now retire after spending four decades with us.

Paula is a popular member of the team and is well known by everyone at the site. After receiving her recognition, Paula said: “The last 40 years have been amazing and I am sad to be leaving but also excited to start a new chapter in my life. We have been through lots of ups and downs but throughout everything our site has grown and become closer. This is a wonderful place to work and feels more like a family atmosphere than a workplace.

“I now look forward to spending more time with friends and family and enjoying time with my children. I also want to thank everyone for the kind messages, gifts and everything else. I wish everyone and the business the best for the future and will be sure to keep in touch – thank you for everything.”

Natasha Simmons, HR Manager, added: “Paula is more than a team member she is a close friend of so many people and well respected by all. It is sad to see her go, but we are also happy she is now enjoying time with friends and family. I want to personally thank her on the behalf of the business and the site for all her years of dedication and service – and of course wish her the best for the future and her retirement.”
