A ‘lovely’ customer team member, who has been working at a store in Burwell for the last 11 years, retired on Saturday (February 12). 

Julie Sangster, has been working in the Co-op store in Ness Road ever since it started trading as Budgens. 

“I believe the Co-op lease started in June 2016 which would make it five and a half years that I’ve been with the company,” said Julie. 

“A few customers remember me from my main career though which was with Barclays bank in Cambridge.”

A photo of Julie alongside some of her colleagues and manager, Steve Smith, was posted on Facebook when she retired; it now has nearly 100 reactions. 

Steve said: “Julie led membership for the last two years at the store. 

“She engaged with the team to promote Co-op membership to the customers and the benefits of the 2% rewards given to the community.”
