Linda Whalley and Jane Parry

Linda Whalley (Retiring HR Officer) and Jane Parry (Managing Partner)

We’ve recently said goodbye two long-serving members of the PM+M team – Linda Whalley (HR & Training Officer) and Colin Payne (Caretaker).

Linda Whalley

How long have you been with PM+M?  
I joined PM+M on the 7 January 1991, so over 24 years.

What made you stay so long?  Several things. My work has always been varied and interesting. I’m part of a highly respected firm that’s going places and my colleagues are a great bunch of people to be around.

One thing you’ll miss?  The PM+M people and the many contacts who’ve become friends.

One thing you’re looking forward to?  Whatever new and exciting things come my way.

How will you be spending your time?  I will be continuing with my two afternoons a week as a voluntary teaching assistant, going to the gym and long walks. I also want to spend more time out and about on my narrowboat and catching up with my friends. I also intend to explore new volunteering opportunities – I like to keep busy.

Colin Payne

How long have you been with PM+M?  Just under 16 years.

What made you stay so long?  Friendly atmosphere and great people.

One thing you’ll miss?  Getting up on a cold winters morning to defrost the bollards in the car park… Joke!

One thing you’re looking forward to?  Putting my feet up (if I can).

How will you be spending your time?  I will be out on my motorbike a lot more. It will also be great to get out fishing and spending more time pursuing my hobby of drawing and water colouring.

Everyone at PM+M would like to wish Linda and Colin a very happy and well deserved retirement.
