Congratulations to Cheryl Howarth on reaching 20 years as a crucial member of the TRA office team, having joined way back in February 1998.
I hadn’t even realised that I had passed my 20 year Anniversary with TRA until I came in one morning last week and my colleagues greeted me with chocolates and a beautiful bunch of flowers. I was quite taken aback!
I can’t believe how quickly it has passed. When I think back my children were just starting school when I first started working here part time and now they have all graduated university and are starting out on their own lives. TRA was still in its relatively early days back then and I have seen the company evolve and grow and a number of people come and go in that time, but I’m still here with my feet planted firmly under the table! I’m not one to move about a lot (having spent 12 years in my previous job!), but I reckon reaching the 20 year mark must underline how much I have enjoyed turning up here every day and working alongside my colleagues. Some days have been better than others but there have been plenty of laughs along the way and always the next challenge to get stuck into.
Well done Cheryl - and long may it continue!
