Peter Smith is retiring next month after running Sutton Benger Post Office for nearly 30 years and the village hall committee is organising a party.

It will take place on March 28, at 7.30pm to thank him for 'a job well done' and for his support to the village.

Anyone wishing to contribute towards a retirement gift for Peter can do so to Jill Clarke at 8 Brook Cottages or to committee members Linda Davis, Dot Barker and Jenny Cox by March 14.
