A Fond Farewell

One of our longest serving team members retires at the end of April.

Pamela Wedderburn first joined Greaves West & Ayre 37 years ago in 1985. Initially, she was temporarily employed as a receptionist and typist to cover maternity leave and was based at the Hide Hill office.

For a good number of years now, Pamela has been assistant to the Practice Manager with responsibility for GWA records, maintaining the firm’s database and administrating our Fee Protection Service, amongst other things.

As well as the growth of the firm and moving to shiny new premises in Walkergate, Pamela has witnessed many changes and developments over the years.

The digitalisation of the industry has perhaps had the most impact: when Pamela started, there were no computers, instead typewriters were used for everything and all filing was manual. Pamela also commented that having everyone now located under the one roof makes things much easier; she doesn’t miss all the time spent walking between six separate offices.

When asked what she was going to do with her well-earned free time Pamela said “I’m looking forward to spending more time with my lovely granddaughters, visiting my daughter in Australia, having lots of holidays and generally doing what I want, when I want to!”

Everyone at Greaves West & Ayre thanks Pam for her hard work and loyalty and sends her their very best wishes for a long, happy and healthy retirement.

Global Market Commentary – May

Recent data has hinted at a divergence between the US and UK/EU economies, with signs of an economic slowdown in the States coinciding with Britain and Europe rebounding from a period of stagnant GDP growth. Having been neglected for several years post-Brexit, there is hope that UK stocks may finally prosper given a more favourable macroeconomic environment.
