A plumber who has worked for Tulloch Homes for a quarter of a century is hanging up his tools as he retires.
Les Martin (pictured centre) was presented with gifts at the company’ HQ at Stoneyfield House, Inverness, to mark his retiral on Friday, June 29th.
Les has worked both directly and indirectly for the company since 1993, with the last five years spent with the Highland Plumbing and Heating (HPH) division.
The 69-year-old has worked at various locations over the years including Inverness developments at Hedgefield House, Greenfields, The Parks, Holm Mains and Wester Inshes as well as Bellfield Meadows at North Kessock.
Gordon Macallister, managing director of HPH, presented Les with a bottle of rum, personalised whisky decanter and glasses as well as gift vouchers.
Les also received gifts from his colleagues on site.
Les said: “I’ve enjoyed my time working for the company.
He laughed: “If it wasn’t for my wife writing my retirement letter, I would still be here – I would keep working!”
Les said he will keep himself busy with a sweetie trailer he takes to local events such as music festivals and school fetes. He’s also planning holidays including a safari in Capetown.
Gordon, pictured left, wished Les well as he embarks on his retirement.
He said: “I have known Les for 25 years and he has been a pleasure to work with. Many of our plumbers have learned from Les over the years. I was delighted to present Les with his leaving gifts and we hope he enjoys his well-deserved retirement.”
