Time to Retire

Laurie Andrews has been a barman for about 20 years, the last eight years at the Rising Sun Hotel, Waimea Road. Laurie decided recently, however, that he'd worked long enough, and announced his retirement. Friends, customers, staff and management, however, didn't let him fade out of the picture quietly, and made him a presentation.


Laurie receives from Mrs Gay Adams, wife of the licensee, a present to which many had contributed. In the centre is Frank Adams and at right, old room-mate Arthur Collins.
