Celebration of Neil Brightwell’s 75th birthday (February, 2016)

One of Redmond Gary’s longest serving employees, Neil Brightwell, has recently celebrated his 75th birthday.

Neil, the paymaster, has been with the company since 1984 and although he describes himself on a daily basis as being ‘old and decrepit’, he shows no interest in retiring anytime soon.

Neil has had an interesting and varied work history including spending a year in the Antarctic while in his 20’s (for which he was later awarded a Polar Medal) and working in Papua New Guinea for over two decades as a forester.
