SCARBOROUGH has bid farewell to a popular solicitor who is retiring after nearly 40 years in the legal community.
Roger Taylor has retired after 37 years as a solicitor, the last 16 which have been with Langleys in York.
Mr Taylor, 63, who was a business development partner with the firm, worked mainly in the Scarborough area, visiting clients and organising a host of legal workshops for business in the area.
He was also a regular attendee at numerous networking events across the town, including the Scarborough Ambassadors scheme.
To celebrate his retirement partners at Langleys held a farewell buffet lunch at the Crown Spa Hotel in the Esplanade, with colleagues and clients.
Mr Taylor, who counts driving the miniature train along the North Bay Railway among the highlights of his career, said: “I have made some excellent friends and connections and have some wonderful clients on the coast and in Scarborough and it has been a pleasure to be involved in Scarborough to see it develop and its economic success.”
As well as his reputation in Scarborough Mr Taylor is also a well-known Notary Public in York, a position he has held for 18 years, and acts as a trustee on many boards and societies.
He says he will continue in these roles in to his retirement.
