Sadly, today is Michael Allchin's last day as CE and Assay Master of Assay Office Birmingham.
After an amazingÂ 15 years Michael is preparing to hand over the reigns to our new Chief Executive and Assay Master, Stella Layton.
The final week leading to Michael's Retirement has been emotional but filled with lots of cake, gifts and kind words from friends and colleagues. The caricature picture below was one of the final gifts presented to Michael yesterday by the Executive Team at Assay Office Birmingham.
There have been several parties recently to celebrate Michaels Retirement the last of which is a staff party at The Jam House this evening where we will all be saying ourÂ final farewells.
We will all miss you Michael but wish you a very happy retirement!
Check back later for more pictures of this evenings bash!
