Long Service Awards ...

Long Service Awards this afternoon; for all Children and Families staff who have 25+ years council employment ... they must all be mad ;-))

Really enjoyed presenting the awards - to around 40 people who could attend, but there were also around another 40 who couldn't ... now maths isn't my strongest point [I actually only managed a C at Higher Grade ;-(( ] but I make that about 2,000 years of public service to the City of Edinburgh. That's pretty remarkable.

I do worry that all of this completely invaluable service will come to an end in the not too distant future and I'm not at all convinced that people are staying as long in one career (or even with one employer) these days. I'm an example of that very fact myself ;-((
