An employee very well known to the many customers and suppliers he has come in contact with in over 43 years unbroken service with Mercer & Sons has retired.
David Baron started with the company in 1966 and had a long spell as Office Manager before becoming General Manager of Mercers.
A presentation was made by his colleagues and a buffet held to which many of his friends and colleagues attended.
Dave is typical of the long serving nature of many employees of Mercers but he was the longest serving at present although many here have over 25 years service.
Dave is well known in local sporting circles especially for his long association with Accrington Stanley.
All his colleagues and friends wish him well and a long and happy retirement.
