A TOTAL of 225 years of service to Worthing Borough Council has been celebrated.
Long-service awards for people who have notched up 25 years of employment with the organisation were given out to nine workers.
The ceremony took place in the mayor’s parlour at Worthing Town Hall, where Ann Barlow was on-hand to give out the certificates and congratulate the recipients.
Among those receiving awards was Terry Cutler, a corporate finance officer.
His boss Sarah Gobey, executive head of financial services, said of him: “Terry has been an excellent manager who actively likes new challenges.
“He has been instrumental in helping financial services become a joint service bringing together the knowledge, skills and experience of two diverse teams.
“The organisation would be a poorer place without his humour, wisdom and extensive experience.”
Another award recipient was Olive Mulloy, a clerical assistant in the customer services department. Department manager David Plank described her as a key team member.
“Olive’s cheerful and conscientious approach to work continues to be an asset to the team, a pleasure to work with and example for us all.”
The other award recipients were Bryan Curtis, principal engineer; Kevin Master, executive head of CSWM; Nick Carrington, IT procurement and operations administrator; Chris Campion, IT support officer; Robert Cliff, estates officer; Caroline Humphries, IT support officer, and Marie Maskell, accountancy officer.
