One of Hambleton’s longest serving officers retired last month.

Building Services Manager, Steve Prentice, had been with the authority for almost 37 years.

Council Leader, Councillor Mark Robson, who  presented him with a lifetime membership of the council’s leisure centres , said: “Steve’s dedication and support to the council throughout his time here has been second to none – he has played a significant role and we will miss him.  We wish him a long and happy retirement.”
