A BRECHIN woman has called it a day after almost 40 years service with the local authority.
Aberdeen-born Esther Murray retired last Friday, a week after husband Gordon put the brakes on his career as a self-employed taxi operator in Brechin.
Esther’s long career with the local authority began in 1972 when she became the first rebate assistant with the then Brechin Town Council.
Three years later, when Angus District Council was established, she worked in the town’s rent cash counter, taking on the manager’s job in 1984.
Esther transferred to Forfar in 2006 to manage the Forfar/Kirriemuir community housing team.
She met with her colleagues in the Canmore Room, Forfar, on Friday afternoon, when she was presented with a number of gifts to mark her retiral.
