Saying goodbye to our longest serving employee

Margaret 2

Andrew Granger & Co colleagues gathered in Market Harborough on Wednesday 20th September to raise a toast to Margaret, our longest serving employee who has announced her retirement after a staggering 28 years.

Margaret was one of the original seven employees that worked at St Mary’s Road when we first launched in 1989. In the years that followed, she has seen us grow from the solitary location in Market Harborough to a multi-practice partnership with offices in Leicester and Loughborough.

Colleagues, family and friends all met to celebrate Margaret’s career and look forward to what the future holds. There was plenty of prosecco, canapes and even a special cake made by one of her friends!

“I’m delighted to have spent such a long time here and it’s an honour for me to have been the last of the original seven employees,” says Margaret. “It’s sad for it to come to an end but I’ve loved every single minute of it. There have been lots of great moments over the years, from our very first sale to the opening of our Leicester and Loughborough branches.

“Even though we are much bigger than we were when I first started, there is still a united, family atmosphere in the company and I’m going to miss that and the buzz of the office.”

As you’d expect after 28 years, Margaret has somewhat become part of the furniture in the office and not having her sat at her desk will take some getting used to! We are all going to miss her and we hope that she enjoys her spare time doing all the things that she enjoys.
