Dental Postgrad has been marking the impending retirement of Ann Rockey and paying tribute to her for her 23 years of dedicated service to the department. As Ann prepares for her retirement at the end of March, a ‘bring and share’ lunch on 7th March brought together friends and colleagues from within the department, plus a host of previous colleagues, who congregated in the 8th floor meeting room, many spilling out into the corridor. Ann was presented with gifts from her colleagues, and Professor Jon Cowpe spoke warmly of Ann’s contribution to Dental Postgrad over her 23 years.
The following week, on 14th March, a more formal farewell was held in the Manor Parc Hotel, Thornhill, where Ann’s colleagues from the wider Deanery met and enjoyed an All-Wales Dental Staff Away-Day. Professor David Thomas led on this with everyone enjoying photos and anecdotes from Ann’s past.
Ann… with warmest wishes from all your friends in Dental Postgrad, for a long, happy, healthy and fulfilling retirement.
