Goodbye to Jane

Today we said goodbye to Jane Evison. The name might not be familiar, but if you've ever been to one of the degree ceremonies at Hull you will have seen her handiwork in action. Over the years she has worked behind the scenes to make everything seem as effortless as possible. She is a great person to work with, although she doesn't suffer fools particularly gladly, which makes her getting on well with me especially surprising.

We had a leaving do for her this afternoon, she said some thank-you's and rather surprised both myself and James, the other graduands marshal, by giving us both a bunch of flowers each. Thanks a bunch (literally) - although I now have to explain to number one wife why I'm being given flowers....

Good luck in the future Jane, have fun.
