The Alan Burton Boardroom

We recently celebrated the retirement of Alan Burton, who worked at our Palethorpes bakery for a staggering 51 years.

Joining straight from school in 1971, Alan held a variety of roles in his time here, before joining the hygiene department in 2001 – a role he held up to his retirement.

Alan is pictured below polishing our new boardroom plaque, which was named in his honour – recognising his service and dedication to Palethorpes bakery.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Alan for everything you have done to support Palethorpes and the group over the years.

Have a wonderful retirement.
