Staff at the builders merchant marked Jean’s retirement with a Dinner at ‘The Priory Farm Restaurant’ in St. Olaves and a surprise celebratory event on 31st July 2015, her last day with the company.

Chris Gouveia, branch manager at Lowestoft, wished the 65-year-old a happy retirement adding she will be “greatly missed”.

He said: “Jean has been an integral part of the business and particularly the Lowestoft branch.

“Due to her hard work, Lowestoft has seen a huge reduction in stock losses and her organisational skills are enviable.”

Gordon Ridgeon, director of Ridgeons, said: “It was my pleasure to award Jean with her 10 Years Long Service award last year.

“She has taken on a number of roles in her time at the Lowestoft branch and clearly has been a valued member of the team. I am very pleased to thank Jean for her significant service to the Ridgeons Group and her individual contribution to the company. We all want to wish her a long, well-deserved and happy retirement.”
