Long-serving staff from Robinson Services Laundry Division, who have been with the company for fifteen years or more, recently enjoyed an evening dinner hosted by David Robinson in celebration of their dedicated service to Robinson Services.
At the dinner, held on the 22nd April at the Mermaid Kitchen and Bar Portrush, there was lots of reminiscing, and funny stories were told; journeying back even to a time when the staff worked in Waveney Laundry in Ballymena, before it was bought over by Robinson Services and the name subsequently changed when relocating to the new £2m investment in Antrim. The delicious dinner was complimented by stunning views of the Portrush Harbour and West Bay Strand, and of course, the fantastic company.
David Robinson, Managing Director of Robinson Services, commented; “The eleven staff in attendance total a staggering combined 321 years’ service, a truly monumental figure! The staff who attended the dinner range from all different roles within the laundry team and I would personally like to congratulate them all once more on their respective milestones within the company. Our longest-serving Laundry member, James Fullerton, who retired in March this year, had clocked up a staggering 50 years of service to Robinson Service, and to him in particular, I wanted to show my gratitude. Coming up close behind him is Brian Greer, who is in his 49th year at the Laundry! Rose Mitchell has been working in the Laundry for 43 years, Carson McPherson and Hazel Mark for 30 years, Pamela Fullerton for 28 years, Eugene McReynolds for 22 years, Martin Christie for 20 years, Jenny Jackson for 19 years, Trevor Pedlow for 16 years, and last, but certainly not least, Colin Christie, who joined the team 14 years ago. Each and every one of our Laundry family is a key member of our smooth-running operations, and I want them all to know that their work is very much appreciated. I had a fantastic night at the Mermaid, I hope you all did too!”
