It’s with great sadness that we share the passing of Lucy Howell
Lucy had recently gone on maternity leave and we were eagerly awaiting good news on the birth of her second child, so this has come as a huge shock to us all.
Lucy joined Soils in 2011 as a graduate in our fledgling Hedge End office. She brought a flair and attitude to her work, taking on all challenges and quickly establishing herself in our growing company. She was instrumental in building the team and our ultimate expansion into Winchester. Lucy was there throughout, and we truly couldn’t have done it without her.
In recent years, Lucy took the lead on our Health and Safety and ISO accreditation initiatives. Before she went on maternity leave (and in classic Lucy fashion) she prepared extensive notes, a calendar of key dates and every possible scrap of useful information was filed and organised perfectly. It is yet more sad that in her absence, we realise how lucky we were to have her.
We find some solace that her second daughter, Pippa Lucy Howell, was delivered safely. Along with Pippa, Lucy leaves her husband Matt and eldest daughter Rosie.
