Susan Rickerby celebrated 30 years of working as an accountant in Staple Hill High Street, with a party on Monday November 17 at Staple Hill Methodist Church. 

Susan joined MG Lloydbottom & Co on 1 December 1987 and eventually purchased the practice, now known as Lloydbottoms, on February 1, 2013.

All of the current clients of the firm were invited (some of whom have been with the firm even longer than Susan), together with traders situated near to the office.  Speakers were Staple Hill councillor Ian Boulton and Wild Owl TV founder and presenter Ian McGuire. There were video presentations from Airship & Balloon Company including the making of the Stuart Minion balloon (balloon was made by Cameron’s).

Susan’s son Shaun also prepared a video montage of changes over the last 30 years, and a contrast with things that hadn’t changed and her son Adam was projectionist for the evening. Husband Kevin was in charge of fetching and carrying and dispensing drinks including the home made mulled apple juice Susan is holding in the picture.

Guests were also treated to a performance by the band “Bob’s Rockers” fronted by Gareth Brown, an accountant who works with Lloydbottoms. Gareth is lead vocalist/guitarist and his two young sons joined him on guitars with fellow accountant Adrian Lang on drums.
