Central Wool Growers, now based in Essendine and celebrating 85 years of trading, recently recognised two of its long serving employees.

Paul Bird will complete 45 years in July, and Ian Burnham reached his 40 years service at the beginning of May. Paul started straight from school and Ian joined at 17, both then being trained as wool graders serving a five-year apprenticeship.

They were presented with their awards by the chairman, Stephen Fleming, who passed on the congratulations of the board.
