565 years with EYMS
East Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS) Group has held its annual Long Service Awards Dinner at Tickton Grange Hotel, near Beverley, East Yorkshire. The event recognised a total of 565 years of service by employees, including three 25 year recipients from the Group subsidiary company Finglands Coachways in Manchester. This included the Group Administration Manager, Paul Leeman, who recently retired early due to health reasons but had served East Yorkshire for 44 years. Chairman, Peter Shipp, was recognised for his 51 years along with four other senior managers with over 20 years’ service. The staff received gifts to a value based on the length of service, with a couple of this year’s recipients donating the value of their awards to their chosen charities.
Peter Shipp said, ‘I am very proud that EYMS is able to retain our staff so well, particularly when the majority say they enjoy working for us. These annual award functions recognise people with 25, 35, 40, 45 and 50 years’ service, so of course there are many other long serving employees who have not reached these particular milestones this year.’
