Fond farewell to Janet Chapman
Many colleagues will know that Janet Chapman is retiring at the end of April after nearly 25 years at the University. Janet has worked closely with colleagues across the FD and the wider University and will be much missed by everyone. She has held many different roles over her time at the University, but most recently Janet has done invaluable work as the PA Team Leader.
Steve Gilley, Director of Estates and Facilities, said, “It has been a pleasure to work so closely with Janet over the years. Her help and support has always been vital, and she will be a great loss to the whole of the FD.”
Last year Janet, her husband and her daughter purchased property near Doncaster which they have turned into a stables and extensive exercise area for their many horses – so she’ll have plenty to keep her busy! Although everyone at the FD will be sad to see her go, we wish her the best of luck in retirement and look forward to staying in touch.
