Angela's 40 years at heart of the council.

FORGET e-mails and the worldwide web, when Angela Camps started work as a shorthand typist it was hand-written memos and carbon copies.

Angela, who is one of North Warwickshire Borough Council's longest-serving employees, has just clocked up 40 years' service.

She started work as a shorthand typist in the treasurer's department with the former Atherstone Rural District Council on Monday, March 11, 1968.

When that council merged with Meriden Rural District Council to form North Warwickshire Borough Council in 1974, Angela moved into the new council offices in South Street and became secretary to the director of finance, now director of resources - a post she still holds today.

She said: "Although I have been employed by the council for 40 years, I have actually only worked for three finance bosses in all that time."

Angela has been married to Terry since 1995 and has three stepsons, 12 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.

Next year, Angela is due to retire after which she plans to visit friends and family more often and continue with her card making hobby.
