Letter from Julia and Roy Scott

Norman and all at BCA,

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the lovely orchid and figurine. We collect figurines but this one is special and it will always remind us of the lovely people and friends we have met at BCA. Saturday was an emotional, but a very pleasurable day. It was particularly touching when we finally left the room. Due to the emotions I could not thank everybody as I would have liked. I apologise but I am sure you appreciate the circumstances. As I did say I didn’t want to retire and would have liked to work on until I was 101! But it is obvious that this is the right time to retire.

Over the years I have met and enjoyed so many people at BCA and I could not thank everyone individually but I would like to pass on a special thanks to Gill for all the help she has given. She certainly works very hard for BCA. Similarly, I would like to thank you, Norman. I look on you as a friend, not just a “boss”. We must always keep in touch.

All my love and best wishes for the future.

Julia (and Roy)
