Winchester worker celebrates 40 years at M&S
A WINCHESTER Marks and Spencer worker has celebrated 40 years in service with a fancy champagne reception in London.
Kathleen Mabey, 56, of Upper Brook Street, started work in the High Street store in 1973 at the tender age of 16 when the rails were filled with flared trousers and platform boots.
She celebrated her anniversary, at the start of the month (September 4), along with another 118 long-serving colleagues from across the UK who share 3,160 years of experience between them.
Ms Mabey said: “I’ve always loved my job and so this trip to London was the real icing on the cake after 40 wonderful years. The Winchester store has a real family feel to it and I’ve made some fantastic friendships with colleagues and customers over the years.”
Sacha Berendji, director of retail for M&S, said: “We’re incredibly proud of our loyal workforce and we always enjoy recognising and celebrating important milestones, like today when our colleagues achieve 25 and 40 years’ service with M&S.
“To be raising a glass with well over a hundred staff this year is a real testament to the quality and dedication of our employees. Our stores have evolved significantly over the years, but good customer service is, and has always been, central to everything we do at M&S.”
