Sue Morris and Yvonne Price, who both work for Keelys, are showing no signs of taking things easy as they move into their eighth decade.

Secretary Sue joined the company in 2001, and works in both the employment and commercial litigation departments of the firm in Dam Street two days a week.

“I love my work as much as walking and gardening, together with yoga, and I trust these things will help to keep me mobile over the coming decade and enable me to manage the many stairs during my remaining time at Keelys,” Sue said.

Meanwhile, Yvonne has been with the firm almost five years, having started by helping out for a couple of weeks while people were on holiday.

She also lives in Lichfield and works in the residential conveyancing department two days a week.

“I enjoy my garden, going to the gym and I also go for a 10K run most Fridays,” she said. “I have been co-opted into the team of Keely’s Runners and have completed several runs with them.”

Sharon Lawrence, senior partner at the company said she was pleased to see the two employees marking their milestone birthdays.

“These ladies are proof that people can make a very active and worthwhile input in their later years,” she said. “We really want to support our older workforce as they bring great experience of life, which can only benefit the whole ethos of us as a close knit business working for the community we serve.”
