Happy retirement to ‘our Lizzie’

March 25, 2022

This month, we wish a fond farewell to Lizzie, who’s spent the last 32 years working as part of the Sewell on the go team at Sutton. Whilst we’ll miss her, she is going to enjoy some well-deserved down time in her retirement.

Over the years, Lizzie has left such a positive impact on many of our customers and team members, leaving them with countless memories. A memory we hope she’ll treasure is one of her final ‘public appearances’ with Sewell Group launching our partnership with Sewell Group Craven Park.

We’ll all miss her enormously – here’s just a couple of notes from the Sewell on the go team:

Patrick Sewell, Sewell on the go MD

“I first met Lizzie when I was 18 years old (I’ll be 50 when she retires on 31st March!) She was as kind, helpful and friendly then as she is today.

Sutton has always had a strong visible team that engages with the local customers and wider community. Throughout her 32 years, Lizzie has been at the forefront of that – she is a local institution in her own right.

Lizzie has always been recognised first and foremost for her customer service – the absolutely epitome of world class.”

Lesley Conman, store manager

“I have worked with Lizzie for nearly nine years in different roles and I have never known anyone form such strong relationships with staff and customers.

Every customer knows Lizzie. She has touched so many people and she made my time at Sutton more enjoyable. Lizzie always delivers world class customer service, and you can see what that means when you see how the customers react when they see her. She will be missed massively by all.”
