  • Dee’s free of tea, after a decade of Smith & Lee!

    Dee Birch with Mark Smith and Dave Lee

    After 10 years dedicated service, staff recently had to say goodbye to Dee Birch, PA to the Directors. Dee has relocated to her dream life in rainy Wales with her partner Ed and the dogs.

    On Friday 1st June all the staff at Ashley Manor organised a buffet send-off lunch, where Dee was presented with gifts from all her colleagues and a special thank you from the Directors.

    It was a very emotional day and Dee will be greatly missed on both a personal and professional level but she leaves with everyone’s blessing and support having played a key part in driving the businesses forward over the last decade.

    Dee is continuing to work for the businesses over the next few months albeit in a remote capacity. For any customers or suppliers who missed the opportunity to say goodbye to Dee, please drop us a line and we will be happy to forward on your well wishes.
