An employee who worked at Stevenage railway station for more than 20 years and was nicknamed the ‘mum of Great Northern’, has received a warm send off following her retirement earlier this week.
Susan Shickle retired on Monday after working for 22 years at Stevenage station.
Susan enjoyed cake, banners, a special announcement on notice boards and the company of dear colleagues as she waved her railway career goodbye.
Marc Edwards, Stevenage station manager, said: "Susan had a big presence within the team and was a huge resource for staff. She will be greatly missed."
Although Susan is looking forward to spending more time with her grandchildren in Stevenage, she won't be missed for too long - she has already promised to tend after the station's flower boxes that she helped to plant.
