Dounreay  -

Stan Fraser, the popular foreman in D2001, retired from UKAEA at the end of November. Stan, a native of Wick and a joiner to trade, had two stints at Dounreay, firstly in 1969 when he joined UKAEA Constabulary from the RAF. Four years later he returned to his original trade, rejoining UKAEA in 1981. He was posted to D2001 and remained there until he retired. At a presentation ceremony, Dick Stewart, head of process plants decommissioning, spoke warmly of Stan’s commitment and energy, and the support he always gave to his staff. “He looked upon D2001 as his domain,” said Dick. “Everything he did was in the best interest of the facility.” He then presented Stan with a number of gifts on behalf of his colleagues, including a glass model of D2001. In reply, Stan said he was leaving Dounreay with many happy memories. “Over the years many friendships and relationships were established,” he said. “We were set many targets, and overcame a few problems, but all were overcome by that warm sense of bonding.” In thanking staff and management for their support over the years, he wished them every success for the future.
