Hospital staff held a party to say goodbye to two popular colleagues who between them had more than 30 years’ service.

Estates supervisor Cis Woodruff and building craftsman Gary Marshall both retired from Stamford Hospital in April.

Colleagues gathered to say their goodbyes at a special party and presented them with a selection of gifts and a personalised cake each, which was designed and created by Su Mansell.

Cis started work at Stamford Hospital in 1987 and has been a valued member of the estates and facilities team for the last 28 years.

Gary began working for the Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals Trust in 1982, following in his father Tom’s footsteps. Tom worked in the facilities department at Peterborough District Hospital. Gary painted various departments at Peterborough District Hospital before moving to Stamford Hospital in 2003.

Stamford matron Sue Brooks said: “Cis and Gary have worked at Stamford for many years and are highly valued members of our estates team.

“They have worked hard to keep the place in good condition and their contribution to making the hospital a pleasant and efficient environment was considerable.

“They were always willing to go the extra mile and were well-liked and respected by all staff.”
