Pauline, who also celebrates her birthday tomorrow, started working for Graysons in 1972 at the office on North Church Street, Sheffield, one of the firm’s then two offices. She joined as the firm’s office junior initially, has worked in the accounts department since 1974.
Pauline has fond memories of her time at Graysons and, whilst the firm was established in 1925, many years before Pauline started working here, she does recall its founder, Robert Grayson, popping into the office on a regular basis after his retirement and has worked with his sons Derek and Gordon.
“I’ve really enjoyed working at Graysons and have made many friends here. I’ve seen lots of changes over the years – including huge changes in technology of course – but I’ve moved with the times and embraced them! Of course, I’m sad to be leaving – and sure I will still be up and ready to go every day for a while – but I’m looking forward to my retirement and hopefully spending more time with my family. Thank you to everyone here for your wishes and lovely gifts – I will certainly miss you!”
Graysons partners and staff will be celebrating Pauline’s retirement with her tomorrow evening and she has been presented with cakes, made by colleague, Lacey Bates-Blinkho, to share with her friends and family.
