A couple who have run a newsagents in Thorne for nearly three decades are set to retire.
Trevor & Christine Leggott have run The News Box, on King Street in Thorne, for 29 years with the couple now set to retire on Saturday 9 September.
Trevor called it “the end of an era”, going on to say that their best memories of the shop will be “meeting a lot nice people”.
“We’ve made some good friends”, added Christine, “We are going to miss people, our customers, especially the older ones that we have known a lot of years”, she said.
The couple thanked the paperboys and girls they have had working for them over the years, with Christine saying: “we’ve had some really nice kids through here”. Trevor said some of their past deliverers have even had their own children delivering newspapers for the couple.
Trevor says he will now spend more time down at Thornensians, whilst Christine said she is looking forward to babysitting duties with a new grandchild on the way.
We wish them both all the very best for the future.
