Pamela retires after 42 years

PAMELA Seabrook, who has spent 42 years serving behind the counters of shops in Snodland, has retired. In her time at the Co-op in the

High Street the shop has been owned by Key Market, David Greig, Cullens, Eversheds, Circle K and Alldays before being bought by the Co-op. Pamela, of Thomson Close, Snodland, lived in Otford, near Sevenoaks and when she left school in 1953 she went to work in a grocery shop. She met her husband John in 1958 in a shop in Sevenoaks, where he was as- sistant manager.

They married in 1961 and had

three children, Alison, Jane and Mark. John died in 2013. Pamela received gifts from the company and colleagues at a presentation on her last day. She said: "It was all a bit overwhelm- ing. "I will miss the customers and

the staff." Pamela will be occupied in re- tirement by her hobbies, garden- ing and knitting. Carol Evans, the Co-op man-

ager, said: "We are very sorry to have her leave. After 42 years her record is incredible. She will be sorely missed."

MEMBERS of Snodland Town Council and the chief executive Karen Sowten were joined by Cllr Brian Luker, Tonbridge and Malling Coun- cil's cabinet member for environmental services, and members of Snodland Goes Cleaner, who cleared up 22 sacks of litter, two prams and a highway sign in an hour. The rubbish was picked up in the footpath from the Red Lion in the High Street to Rocfort Road and the Roc- fort Road section to the bypass. The event was one of 15 Love Where You Live campaigns supported by the borough council, which pro- vided the litter-picking equipment and disposed of the rubbish. Cllr Luker said: "It was great to see so many people taking pride in

their own part of the borough and it was a pleasure to be part of that. At the end of the day we certainly felt we had achieved something and could see a real difference." Karen Sowten said the council was proud to be part of the Snod-

land Goes Cleaner campaign which had seen some positive action over a number of years.
