A HUSBAND and wife team are retiring after more than ten years working at a Royston shop.
Stephen and Janet Greeves will be leaving Merlin Mica Hardware, in Market Hill, for the last time next week. The pair have been working at the shop since 1997.
Having worked in the hardware department at Harrods, and been sales manager for a national hardware wholesaler, Mr Greeves said that the last ten years have been "the happiest years of his working life."
He said: "You really feel like part of the community here. All the staff and customers are really friendly."

She said: "It's a really great team to have been a part of, but now we will hopefully have time to do all the things that usually get put on the back burner."
