Farewell to all
There comes a certain time in dedicated partners lives when for a variety of reasons they decide to leave for pastures new. To trade in the five day working week for a five day weekend. This is retirement. Some choose to leave quietly with out any fuss but for the majority a retirement party or high tea is held in the branch which is organised by the Area Retirement Co-ordinator (Retirement Secretary.) Immediate family are invited and friends from around the partnership can attend as well as branch partners. It gives the retiring partner a chance to reminisce with old friends and colleagues.
Some department teams arrange to have a more intimate dinner as well to say their goodbyes.
If you have photographs of your retirement do(s) we can add them to this page.
