A Sudbury accountant who began his career as a teenage apprentice at a town firm is retiring after 51 years with the same employer.
Graham Hardy started working at Moore Green Accountants (formerly Norman Green) in Sudbury’s Friars Street when he was 15-years-old in June 1966.
Mr Hardy met his wife Gwen, who was his secretary, at the firm and he regards that as his best moment at Moore Green. The couple have been happily married for 38 years.
Mr Hardy is a founder member of Project Seven - a charitable organisation which has donated more than £600,000 to local charities since it was launched in 1982.
He intends to spend more time working with Project Seven as well as taking up fishing again.
Nick Farr, managing partner at Moore Green, said: “We are all going to miss Graham’s upbeat manner and accountancy expertise however, we wish Graham a long and happy retirement – he deserves it.”
