After 16 years of being the MoB handyman Frank hung up his hammer and handed over his 6 inch nails to Dan. Frank came to us having worked for Wyke farms and before that at the old feed mill in Bruton. He will be missed (but not his whistling) going about the place doing his checks amazingly always with something to eat in his hand.
We decided to give him his leaving present at our annual Christmas dinner. Frank seemed slightly overcome (always a first) with his present of two whisky tumblers and a fine bottle of whisky.
A total of 25 MoB staff (sadly a few couldn’t make it) made the dinner, before we had a drink in the Longhouse whilst opening our Secret Santa presents. Someone made Ciaran the most amazing crab box in which his present sat, we thought it was brilliant but I think Ciaran had other thoughts!
