  • Liz retired in December after more than 30 years at SUR in English

Colleagues and directors from Prensa Malagueña, as well as friends and family, came together at the AC Malaga Palacio hotel last week in recognition of the work of Liz Parry, SUR in English's retired former editor.

Director general José Luis Romero, editor in chief Manuel Castillo and director of publications Pedro Luis Gómez all spoke in praise of the work carried out by Liz during more 30 years with the company, much of which she served as editor.

In the presence of retired former colleagues, such as Eve Browne and Kate Rayner, Liz was then presented with a sculpture, a designer handbag and a specially-made SUR in English front page to mark the occasion.

Liz, who has recently been awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) by Queen Elizabeth II, said: "There are so many much-loved people here, I've had a ball."
