Several BLB staff members gathered in Bradford on Avon on Wednesday 31st October to bid farewell to Carolann Annal who has been with the firm for a remarkable 48 years.
She was referred to the firm in 1970 by the ‘Labour Exchange’, and although the firm weren’t actively recruiting at that time, Terry Bishop, then Managing Partner, said we took her on ” as she seemed to have the requisite skills”!
In 1974, Carolann moved with Guy Bagnall to open the Bradford on Avon office where she spent the rest of her career. For the majority of that time she has headed the policy department, a niche area of work where, with Carolann at the helm, the firm quickly gained a leading reputation.
We all wish her a long, happy and healthy retirement.
