Braunston Marina’s long serving company accountant Carol Coy said farewell to her colleagues after 25 years.
At her leaving reception in the marina shop, Carol received many gifts and kind words both from the company and individual staff.
She was given a weather vane, made especially for her by one of the company’s engineers, Gavin Clewer, to go on the roof of her garden shed.
The weather-cock is in the form of an old working narrowboat, with the traditional sign-writing reading ‘Carol’s Carrying Co.’
Carol said: “This will always remind me of my happy days working at Braunston Marina, when I never knew which way the wind was blowing.”
Tim Coghlan, managing director, said: “Carol has for sometime now been our longest serving employee, coming onboard in the very earliest years of the company, when it was a very different ship from what it is today. “Not only has she been outstanding in her work, growing with the company, but she is a lovely person, and I’m not just saying it.
“The proof is in the many personal gifts she has received today from her colleagues. I wish her a long, healthy and happy retirement.”
