Ann retires from Folkingham Shop after 27 years
A village shopkeeper has retired after almost three decades serving the community.
Ann Bentham has worked at Folkingham Shop in the Market Place, Folkingham, since 1992. During her three decades, the 78-year-old has worked under six different owners and spent her shifts behind the counter, cleaning and restocking the shelves and providing an all important listening ear to both her colleagues and customers.
After she retired last month, customers started a collection for the much-loved shopkeeper and raised an impressive £250.
