After eight years of loyal service, Sue Allsop, manager at the All Cannings community shop, has decided to call it a day.

Well, almost, because she will still be working for three Saturday mornings a month for old times’ sake.

At the presentation on her retirement outside the shop a large number of volunteers and shop supporters wished her well.

She was given a bouquet of flowers and a cheque by the shop chairman, Paul Oakley.

To remind herself of all those who have supported her over the years she bought herself a blue topaz pendant mounted in silver with matching earrings, and she promises to wear them when in the shop next time she is on duty.
