Tribute to a quarter century of sarnie-slicing

[ November 29, 2016   //   ]

The House of Commons may have had its Annie’s Bar but Europa Worldwide has paid tribute to one of its old employees with by naming the caff at its Dartford base Annette’s Café.
Annette Lacey ran the company’s canteen at its old headquarters in Erith for 25 years. She is now enjoying a well-earned retirement but, together with her son and daughter, attended the unveiling of the name at an event hosted by Europa managing director Andrew Baxter and attended by many of its 250-strong staff.
The name was chosen by Europa traffic desk administrator, Tracey Butler-Jack who was presented with a prize by Andrew Baxter at the opening ceremony.
Tracey herself has worked at Europa for 23 years, and wanted to find a way to thank Annette for her years of dedication to Europa. She said: “Annette is a lovely lady who looked after us for many years.”
Annette’s Café not only has a contemporary look it has been designed to offer a huge choice to cater for both staff and visitors, including pop-up street food stalls and a lunch-time loyalty scheme.
Clearly, things have moved on since the days of the lorry driver’s tea and a wedge…
