After more than 33 years working at a Royston shop, the retirement of a loyal manager was marked with a surprise bash in store.
Family, friends and customers held a party for Hugh Ancell at Scrivens Opticians in the High Street on Saturday, as a way of saying thanks before he begins the next chapter of his life.
Hugh’s son Peter said: “It was great to give him a good send-off. He made a speech and really enjoyed himself.
“He’s looking forward to the start of his retirement and chilling.”
Before the chilling begins, one of Hugh’s first adventures will be a ride in a World War Two Tiger Moth at Duxford Imperial War Museum – a gift purchased for him as part of his retirement.
