Long serving secretary Margaret Towns was given a surprise farewell presentation when she retired after 35 years service from Epworth’s Holmes and Gardens Centre.
Margaret, 62, of Tottermire Lane, Epworth, joined the centre in 1978.
Colleagues chipped in to buy her bouquets a digital camera and gift vouchers.
She said: “It was a complete surprise, I got a round of applause from everyone when I walked into the restaurant - it was marvellous. I would like to thank everyone for the lovely gifts.”
Her colleague Ian Rusling said: “Margaret is a lovely lady. We all wish her the very best in her retirement.”
