Happy retirement Alan the Paint

Picture by Arthur Procter
Marple's Market Street has lost an institution this weekend with the retirement of Alan "the Paint" Kennington. Friends and colleagues held a party on Saturday, which was one of those happy/sad occasions. Alan is certainly looking forward to his future.

But as one door closes, it seems another is opening. Rick Morris from All Things Nice next door is going to expand into Alan's old space and build a bakery.

Thanks to everyone from the Marple Business Forum for such a lovely send off for Alan and here's to the future for Alan the Paint!
