How I came to work at Berwins

In 1988 I joined A M Hall & Co as a shy Receptionist – (Sue Avery will vouch for that). I also met Diane Scott there too. I stayed there until I went on Maternity leave in 1994. Whilst I was on Maternity leave, Paul Berwin merged with A M Hall & Co.

Once my daughter was 2, I felt ready to return to work part-time, and to have some “adult” conversation again. I got a job as a Secretary, at Barber Robinson, which later merged with Titley Paver Crow & Fedden and later became known as Barber Titleys (and now recently known as LCF Barber Titleys). It was here that I met Jenny Spence and Michelle Crowhurst, who now both work at Berwins too. I didn’t enjoy working there due to one of the partners (who shall remain nameless!) so I telephoned Sue to ask if there were any jobs going at Berwins, a firm I was highly interested in working for. I would have become the cleaner if necessary! Sue said there was a job and I duly started at Berwins in February 1998 as a Secretary in Conveyancing – and later moving to Accounts, a department that I have worked in for several years.

In May 2002, Berwins merged with another local firm, Myers & Co. Little did I know that one of the Partners from there would later become my husband, who I have just celebrated our first wedding anniversary with after many happy years together.

And the rest, as they say, is history……………..
