Enderby pharmacist Paul Chadwick is to retire at the end of December when the business will pass to new owners.
Paul has served the community in Enderby for 26 years and is well-known by many local residents who use the Enderby Pharmacy on Mill Lane.
For many years, Paul has also been a keen member of the Huncote Harriers running club who meet on Tuesday evenings at Enderby Leisure Centre.
In recognition of his long service to the community, Paul was invited to the December 14th meeting of Enderby Parish Council where Council Chairman, Cllr. R. Geisler made the presentation of a crystal glass engraved timepiece on behalf of the community in Enderby.
Paul says that in retirement he intends to return to his earlier hometown area of Little Lever, part of the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton, Greater Manchester.
