40 years of loyal and dedicated service

  • Posted

Remarkably Margaret Thorogood has just achieved the notable milestone of 40 years service with Gepp & Sons, many of those years working for the Senior Partner of the Firm and in the same Family Law Department. The occasion was marked by a formal presentation and an acknowledgement of Margaret's dedication and loyalty by Managing Partner Steven Payne in front of the whole Firm. Margaret was born in Chelmsford, passed her 11 plus examination and attended the Mid - Essex Technical School when it was located in Victoria Road South, before it moved north of the town centre, eventually changing it's name to the Chelmer Valley High School. Margaret has witnessed a great deal of change both professionally & socially in Chelmsford, it is perhaps a sobering thought that when she began her career with Gepp & Sons in 1970 the A12 still ran through Chelmsford, the UK average house price was about £5000 and she was earning £7.50 per week.
