Many of our friends, colleagues and clients will already be aware that we sadly lost Sue Garratt to cancer in September. Sue (then Sue Eastham) first worked at Garratts as her first job upon leaving college before re-joining in 2001 as Company Secretary.

Sue continued to work at Garratts looking after the marketing and management accounts until her sudden death. The management and staff will miss her dearly and thank everyone for their love and best wishes over the last few weeks.

The annual Insurance Institute of Preston & Blackpool dinner took place at Ribby Hall on 2nd October with Richard Garratt and John Grindley this year’s President and Deputy respectively. Over 200 guests were present for the emotional evening where tributes were paid to our own Sue Garratt who sadly passed away in September at the far too young age of 52.

Guest speaker, Frank McKenna and the live band – Universal Exports – ensured a great night was had by all as the guests partied into the early hours.

In addition to Richard and John, we are delighted that Anne, Matt and James all represent Garratts on the local Insurance Institute Council serving the interests of almost 900 members.
