Carol Vincent retired from Nigel Coyle and Co yesterday.

Carol Vincent has worked for Nigel Coyle and Co Accountants, which is based on Manor Street, and was an employee for Winn and Co Accountants before Mr Coyle took over the concern.

He said: “For the last 46 years she’s been the secretary at quite a few firms.

Carol Vincent retired from Nigel Coyle and Co today.

“I took it over about four years’ ago and her knowledge of the town, and people in the town, is second to none.

“She really helped me when I first took on the practice. She knew everybody, she could introduce people. She pretty much knows everybody’s comings and goings, which is always handy.

“She has basically looked after me and kept me in check.

“Carol has always made sure everything runs smoothly at the practice.

“She will be a hard act to follow. We haven’t even looked into doing that yet.”

Her daughter Tracy Vincent said: “Mum was 72 years old in December, and she is finally taking a much deserved retirement from Wednesday, March 31.

“For 46 years now (it would have been 47 years in June) she has worked at the practice.

“Her duties included looking after the reception, secretarial duties, and accounts assistant. I know a lot of clients will miss her.

“She’s helped the present clients and some of their parents before them. She’s heading to a much deserved retirement!”
