A surprise party was held at the National Farmers’ Union’s branch in Spilsby last week in honour of a union secretary who has enjoyed a 40 year career so far.
Colleagues Wendy Aucote, Christian Ford, and wife Barbara Odling wanted to wish fellow agent Philip Odling well done and surprised him with the celebration in the Nelson Butt pub in Spilsby when he met them after work on Friday.
Philip Odling, who is both the union’s group secretary and an agent for the NFU Mutual Insurance Society Ltd, said he was both shocked and pleased with the evening. He said: “It was a complete surprise and I want to thank those who made an effort to attend. Here’s to future years.”
