AW Repair Group have celebrated our first retirement. After a decade of service with the company, Rob Kelby enjoyed his last day at work yesterday.

Rob was originally employed as a panel technician for AW a decade ago within the fast paced workshop; lately Rob has been driving one of the transporters. Swapping his car keys for a golf club, Rob is now set to enjoy a much deserved quieter life on the golf course.

To mark the occasion, the team at the Sleaford branch raised a glass and enjoyed a meal with Rob last night at a local restaurant. Rob is well liked, a team member colleagues affectionately name ‘Pops’. Swapping stories and sharing memories it made for a fantastic evening.

Here at AW we want to thank you Rob for the time you have graced us with, your humour and loyalty will be sorely missed and we wish you all the best in the next chapter of your life.

Added Managing Director Andrew Walsh: “Rob has been an excellent role model and mentor to other team members and will be very much missed from the team.”
