Five colleagues at Duncan and Toplis received long service awards at the company’s second-annual Company Team Update, held recently at the Lincolnshire Showground Epic Centre.

Sandy is personal assistant to the managing director, Adrian Reynolds, and started working for the company in 2000 when she first moved to the area.
“There have been many changes in Duncan & Toplis over the years with the progression of IT and a move of location to Endeavour Park in 2006 to a purpose-built office. I am very fortunate to work alongside a very professional team of individuals who, like me, enjoy working alongside our clients. I enjoy the ever-changing challenges that face a progressive and forward-looking company and I look forward to the next 15 years.”
In addition to the long service awards, the Company Team Update also saw the presentation of reports on how the company is performing.
Mr Reynolds said: “This was a great day for all at Duncan and Toplis. The chance to get everyone together from our 11 offices across the East Midlands is rare. It’s a great opportunity to inform our extensive team of our successes, to reflect on the last 12 months and to see where we are headed for the future.
“We also celebrated members of the team who have given us many years of valuable serviceand I wish to thank them again for their commitment and hard work.”
