Leaving the business, Mrs Peers said: "It will be odd (not working).

"There have been a few tears - But, I have a great social life and I will be looking to travel and exercise more.

"I'll keep be popping into the shop as I'm still very close to the staff. I'll be leaving on a high - and I hope to come back and occasionally help out - so I'm sure it won't be a goodbye forever."

Mrs Park added: "She has been a great friend to me over the years and although she is retiring, like Jane says, this isn't goodbye. I consider her like a member of my family."
