A much-loved Ilkley pharmacy supervisor is to retire from her post after more than 38 years.

Mary Hulme is known by many customers, patients, and professionals for her service at Lloyds Pharmacy, Springs Lane.

All her working colleagues have said her loyalty has been outstanding to all the company’s that have taken over throughout the years. She has followed on her position in the pharmacy with the highest of proficiency and we have also found her working hours beyond her daily expectation to organise for the next day.

Mrs Hulme would like to thank all the patients, customers, colleagues, and Doctors local to Lloyds pharmacy for their cards and well wishes for her future in retirement.

She said: "I shall miss all the friendly faces and I feel privileged to have got to know so many lovely people over the years."

All the team wished her the fondest farewell and said they are going to find it hard to adjust to her leaving the little family she has created at the shop.

Her colleagues said they felt honoured to have worked with her over the years.
