We say goodbye and good luck to Bob Abbott today, as he starts his retirement.

Bob has worked for Scotts of Thrapston for almost 20 years, as a General Labourer, and is a valued member of staff.

Bob said “I have enjoyed working at Scotts as everyone is friendly and we all work as a team.  I live in Thrapston and it has been great to work for such a respected company that is so local to me.”

His retirement plans include working two days a week for an organisation in Corby helping with adults with special needs and learning difficulties.  Other than that, Bob is hoping to enjoy a lot more gardening, getting out and about on his bike and spending more time playing snooker and pool.

We wish Bob all the very best for a happy and healthy retirement and he will be missed by his Scotts colleagues.
