Norwich City are delighted to welcome Julie Howes as our community hero for Saturday's game against AFC Bournemouth.
On the September 27 2019, Julie retired after over 40 years in public service in the Civil Service. Culminating as the Head of the Norwich office for Her Majesty’s Treasury, she has been instrumental in transforming the operational services we are providing here to other civil servants in various Government departments across the UK.
She has been key in delivering change for the better and instilling a positive working environment that has been appreciated by those who have worked with her. The approach and advice she has put in place will stay with her colleagues throughout their careers.
She has also played an active role in her community, working for several years in the challenging role as a school governor and since retirement, has not ‘put her feet up’ by becoming a Trustee of Eaton Vale Scout and Guide Activity Centre, who will surely benefit by her offering her time and enthusiasm.
She and her husband Brian are both fanatical Norwich City FC fans – prior to retirement, she would represent Norfolk Day by wearing her NCFC shirt to the office. Unfortunately circumstances have meant season tickets have not been renewed, however both Julie and Brian like nothing more than mixing watching NCFC and a visit to a local pub.
Julie has given so much, be it support, advice or just simply the time to listen to lots of people, that being recognised by NCFC as a Community Hero by the football club she loves, will surely be the icing on the cake for her retirement.
