Plymouth-headquartered Fairway Furniture, the South-west’s largest independent furniture retailer - with stores in Plymouth, Tavistock, Newton Abbot and St Austell – presented Long Service Awards to nine of its staff in December, who between them had amassed over 250 years service.
Receiving awards were Jim Booty, John Brien, Penny Craze, Stephen Cumbers, Anthony De Greeve, Natalie Hover, Mike James, Jane Netherton and Liz Walch.
Making the presentations at the company’s pre-Christmas winter sales conference, MD Peter Harding said: “It is such a privilege to be recognising incredible service and dedication to our company from so many staff at the same time and I would like to thank them all so much for their efforts. They say that the staff of a business are the foundations on which its success is built and I know that this business has continued to succeed and develop over the years through the contribution of these nine fantastically committed people.
"While some joined us bringing their skills and enthusiasm, other recipients have been with us for their entire working lives, progressing through the business to management and senior management positions. I look forward to continuing to work alongside all of the recipients for many years to come as we work to further develop and grow the business.”
