On Tuesday afternoon, we took a moment to say thank you to Stephen Hepworth who retired from the Inland Fisheries Service last year.
We wanted to recognise the 18 years of valued service he gave to IFS, with the last 10 years as the Manager of Compliance and Operations.
Stephen was the beneficiary of one of the largest known ‘crowdfunding’ efforts from our workplace. We wanted to ensure Stephen’s retirement lifestyle reflected the effort he exerted while working with us. A reproduction of his favourite painting of yingina/Great Lake was the centrepiece of our gift giving.
On behalf of all of us at IFS, we wish Stephen and his lovely wife, Betty, all the best for their adventures together in retirement bliss.
