SHE’D do anything rather than have her photograph splashed across the pages of The Leader, but Nyman’s Smash Repairs’ office administrator Cheryl Delbridge is worthy of recognition.

According to company director Rick Vine, Cheryl’s 30 years with Nyman’s last Friday could not go unnoticed, despite the modesty of his front-line employee.

“These days, with some of the younger generation, you’re lucky if you can get them to stay on for three years, let alone 30, as Cheryl, and our spray painter, Brian Sipple, have done,” Mr Vine said.

“I’ve been here 20 years and both Cheryl and Brian were here long before me.”

Flowers, a cake and a gift certificate to her favourite day spa were just a small token of appreciation from her employers to mark her 30th anniversary with the company.

“Cheryl is a very friendly, very loyal person and is happy to do pretty much anything around here,” Mr Vine said.

“If something needs sorting, she will always go out of her way to do it.

“She’s very reserved, and wouldn’t want a fuss made about it, but she is a gem.

“Brian’s 30th anniversary with the company was earlier this year while I was away. 

“He’s extremely hard working, very loyal and ultra-reliable.

“We’re very lucky to have people like these two working with the company.”
