BEST WISHES: Retiring subpostmaster Nigel Pritchard and wife Brenda with the Mayor of Colyford, Councillor Howard West, and village residents in front of the Post Office
RESIDENTS of Colyford said goodbye to two familiar faces at the village Post Office and shop yesterday (Monday). Long-standing subpostmaster Nigel Pritchard and wife Brenda retired this week, handing over the reigns to Geoff and Rachel Tattershall. But the couple won’t be going too far as they will be staying in Colyford to enjoy their retirement. Mr Pritchard took over as subpostmaster in 1979 from his mother, but his family have lived at the shop since 1951. Many village residents turned out to wish Mr and Mrs Pritchard well for their retirement. The Mayor of Colyford, Councillor Howard West, said: “In some ways this is a sad day but it’s also a happy day because these two are staying in Colyford.” He then presented Brenda with a bouquet of flowers and Nigel with a bottle of champagne. Mrs Mill said: “We would like to thank all our customers, past and present, for their support. We will miss them, it’s been good fun and we’ve had some good times.” Councillor West then welcomed Mr and Mrs Tattershall, Rachel being the daughter of Malcolm Miller from Millers Farm Shop in Kilmington. He said: “Welcome to Colyford, you have a big act to follow but I’m sure we will all support you. I wish you every success.”
