Doreen hangs up hairnet after 30 years

Doreen Hunt took off her hair hairnet and cap and hung up her white coat for the last time following 30 years of dedicated service working at East Seaton Farm.

Doreen began her career with proprietor Lochy Porter picking strawberries and has worked on the farm as the Scottish soft fruit industry and farm business grew, rising to manage the packhouse in her latter years.

No punnet of fruit picked and packed at East Seaton or Rosemount farm, which produce some of the best soft fruit in the country, has gone out to the sup ermarkets they supply without Doreen’s stamp of approval.

And over her 30 years there are not many jobs on the farm Doreen has not tackled or done.

Debbie Porter said: “Doreen has been an outstanding member of our team at East Seaton, she has been a constant through the years and risen to every challenge.

"Her dedication and service have been exceptional and she will be very much missed by Lochy, myself, our family and everyone on the farm.

"We would like to wish her a long, happy and well-deserved retirement.”
