Retirement Presentations

It was customary for the retirement of employees to be marked by the presentation of a gift donated by their colleagues. This usually took place at their place of work but where appropriate, in the Board Room or at the Sports Club. Such events were in addition to the Long Service Presentation ceremonies.
