Yesterday afternoon after the AGM of AGE UK Suffolk, the staff surprised its retiring CE Daphne Savage with a ‘This is your life’ farewell where she was joined on stage by her family then Charlie Haylock who compared the ‘show’ invited a number fo staff and people who had worked with her over the years to come on stage and say a few words and I was delighted to be one of them. At the end of the event Daphne’s first granddaughter made an appearance and seems as comfortable on the stage as Daphne was.
Daphne is not retiring as she is the inagural Chairman of the new Suffolk Older Peoples Council; an organsiation I am so very keen on and as I said in closing my few words that means she’ll still be about to share her opinions on the services we seek to provide, and be there to give me a hard time!
