A very special day in 2017

One of the most memorable events of last year was undoubtedly a surprise party to mark Vivian Watson’s retirement from our sister company, PJ Watson Ltd.

Cleverly organised by John and Tracey, an invitation was sent out to past and present staff, family and friends to be at The King’s Head in Ivinghoe for a Saturday lunch in October.

Apart from a superb meal for which the restaurant is renowned, there were speeches and entertainment. Vivian’s brother, Philip, amused guests with a song he had written specially for the occasion. The day turned out to be a trip down memory lane with many happy reminiscences.

The highlight of the day, however, was a surprise visit from Peter Watson who had flown in from New Zealand especially for the occasion. Only two people knew beforehand that he had hidden away in a back room before the guests arrived. When he stepped into the room during the champagne reception, there wasn’t a dry eye to be seen.

Although now working a little less, Vivian will continue to look after his own existing clients while Tracey will be taking care of new ones.
