After 44 years’ service with the same firm Colin White retired from W Attwood Ltd on the Chilton Industrial Estate on Friday. Colin joined the firm soon after they relocated their production to Sudbury from the East end of London in 1970.
His boss Martin Attwood presented him with a laptop as a leaving present, while his work colleagues presented him with a bench saw.
“He will have time to put up that greenhouse now,” said one of his colleagues.
Colin said he was looking forward to gardening and getting jobs around the house done.
