Company Accountant Gill Stubbs looks back on 15 years at Heart of the Lakes

After 15 years working at Heart of the Lakes – Company Accountant Gill Stubbs is saying goodbye to the lakes and mountains of the Lake District and saying hello to the Mediterranean Sea and plenty of sunshine.

Gill joined Heart of the Lakes on 1 April 2003 as Assistant Accountant and swiftly progressed to Company Accountant within six months of joining the team. Having spent many weekends and holidays in the Lake District during her early 20s that often included both sailing and motor boats moored on Lake Windermere, Gill found the move from Yorkshire a very favourable one.

Gill has been fortunate enough to have experienced first-hand a range of different aspects of the multi-faceted company and the variety has been the best part of the job.

Gill says; “From a self-catering cottage holiday company, a holiday company in Tuscany, management of a timeshare development, health and beauty salon and bistro to look after both on the accounting side and operational side, no two days could possibly be the same and it has been very rewarding to be involved with such diversity.”

Gill adds: “I will miss all of my colleagues at work but the 15 years with Heart of the Lakes is the culmination of 45 years working life and I am now looking forward to my new adventure in Southern Spain. Needless to say, I will be living in the mountain region 15 minutes’ drive from the Lakes area and 20 minutes from the coast, so the draw of the water is still there!”
