I’ve known Gavin for 27 yrs, when I first started in the dairy industry at Ruislip all those years ago, Gavin was the IT Manager and as I was working in Finance at the time, we had plenty of interactions, Gavin was always helpful in sorting out systems issues and supporting the team with a can do attitude.
The Ruislip HO function was a small tight knit team and we had many a night out in those early years, Gavin was always great fun and good company to spend some time with. Lunchtime in the canteen at Ruislip we often as a group went to lunch together with the hit and miss menu choices, Faggots on a Wednesday …. the Caviar of the North as we christened it.
From Ruislip to Leicester as the business became Express Dairies and then onto the Arla years, Gavin has been a constant from my first day at Arla and someone I would always catch-up with when we were both in the office.
Really sorry to hear the news about Gavin, always enjoyed the time I spent with him and whether in work or socially he was warm, engaging and supportive …. I’ll remember the good times big man!
