SOUTH Kirklees Citizens Advice Bureau has said goodbye to staff member Eileen Marshall after 22 years.
She joined the CAB in 1986 as a volunteer at the group, which was then based at Railway Street in Huddersfield.
She then became an outreach worker, starting weekly sessions in Meltham to offer advice in the community.
In 1994 the group moved to St Peter’s Street, where Mrs Marshall went on to become advice service manager.
In 2006 she helped plan the move to Standard House in Half Moon Street where the organisation has gone from strength to strength.
Chief Executive, Mark Lacey said: “Eileen has been a tremendous advocate for the Citizens Advice service and has led and supported her team of paid staff and volunteers in exemplary fashion.
“During her time she has been with us the service has changed enormously, but Eileen’s commitment to providing the best possible information and advice for the people of Huddersfield has been unwavering.
“We will all miss her professionalism and her infectious good humour.”
Staff, volunteers and trustees past and present joined Mrs Marshall to celebrate her work at the bureau.
She is married to Peter and they have two daughters and one grandchild.
