An employee at a supermarket in East Ham celebrated 35 years working at the store on Friday (June 8).

Currently working on the checkouts, she said: “To be working for 35 years in East Ham Sainsbury’s I must have enjoyed it.

“I would like to thank all my colleagues and customers for all these years.”

Joy was rewarded with a bottle of her favourite brandy.
