People who Matter: Local hero Angie Wiles was 'Jewel in our crown'

In this week’s ‘People who Matter’; we have featured Angie Wiles, cleaning supervisor at the Cresset centre in Bretton. The management and her colleagues have nominated her as a ‘local hero’ to appreciate her commitment to the centre for the last 36 years.

Angie Wiles, who will be turning 70 soon, is now retiring from the job she began in 1984. 

As a stalwart member of the cleaning team, more recently as a supervisor, Angie has seen huge changes in the area and the organisation, but some things have never changed. 

Reacting to her nomination, Angie said: “It’s always been a great place to work. 

“I’ll definitely miss the people most of all, we’ve got a great team and it’s sad to say goodbye, but the time is right for me to retire now, I’m looking forward to getting the odd lie in!” 

Darren Buckman, Head of Operations has worked with Angie for over 25 years: “We really wish Angie all the best for a long and happy retirement. She has always been a jewel in our crown, her hard work, commitment and unfailing ability to make people laugh even at the darkest times will be greatly missed by everyone here.”
