Happy Retirement John

After sixteen years as Site Supervisor, John Easton is retiring from Cardinal Allen.

John took up his role on 22nd April 2002 having held a similar position at Fleetwood High School. You can’t have missed the fact that John has an undeniable south western accent attributable to his time spent in Devon and Cornwall.

John’s early career, some twenty years, was spent at HM Dockyard Devonport where he served his apprenticeship as a Blacksmith. Time followed in grounds maintenance before venturing up north to sunny Fleetwood.

John has formed a formidable double act with Steve and, between them, they have spent many a long evening waiting for various events to conclude before safely shutting up shop. John has also assumed the role of unofficial school photographer, covering most school events and particularly Sports Day and the Leavers’ Prom.

We wish John and his wife Gail all the very best for a very happy and healthy retirement and thank him for his contribution to the life of Cardinal Allen.
