An octagenarian is retiring from Sainsbury’s after 24 years.

Jane Partridge, who will soon be celebrating her

85th birthday, first worked for Sainsbury’s in Lancaster replenishing bread and

cake, wine and spirits and then worked on the checkouts.

Jane used to be a keen biker along with her husband and still visits The Isle of Man TT Races where she was given a long service award a short while ago.

Jane is not one to rest for very long on her laurels and after a short respite she is thinking of doing some volunteer work.

Jane was presented with gift vouchers, chocolates, flowers, brandy and cosmetics by colleagues.
