Four members of staff at the Department of Chemical Engineering each have over 25 years service to the University and to recognise this achievement they were invited to a Reception hosted by the Vice Chancellor, Professor Alison Richard, on Tuesday, 2 December 2003.

The four are Linda Craft, Departmental Administrator, who has been with the University for 35 years, Barrie Goddard, Computer Officer, who has been with the University for over 40 years, mostly in Plant Sciences, Professor Allan Hayhurst, 25 years, and Dr Jim Thompson, Computer Officer, who has been with this department for 28 years.

They are joined in the photograph by other long serving members of staff, Roz Williams, Head of the Laboratory Section, who has served 18 years, Mike Free, who has served 34 years with the University, but not continuously, and Terry Clark, who was previously Head of the Laboratory Section, but is now semi-retired and working part-time. Terry has also served 25 years, but not continuously.

There are three other members of staff who have almost made it to the 25 year mark, but who are not in the photograph. Head of Department, Professor Howard Chase, and Professor Malcolm Mackley have both served 24 years and Senior Lecturer Dr David Scott has served 23 years, with the last 20 of them in this department.
