A solicitors in Bury St Edmunds has bid farewell to a member of staff who had been part of its team for around 40 years.

Gill Freeman retired from Gross & Co, in Guildhall Street, on December 31.

Mr Kirk said: “Gill has been a fantastic servant to Gross & Co, much loved by both her colleagues and clients. She is a huge loss to us and we all wish her the very best for a long and happy retirement.”

Secretary Sara Street said: “Gill was a kind, gentle and generous colleague and friend, always willing to offer support and assistance to everyone. Her happy countenance will be greatly missed.”
