A member of staff at a Beccles pharmacy has been saluted for more than three decades of dedication.

Ruth Wilson, of Ilketshall St Andrew, has been a permanent fixture at Beccles HCC pharmacy for 35 years, in a number of different roles.

This week, her dedication was honoured by her employers, who thanked her for her three-and-a-half decades of commitment with chocolates, flowers and jewellery.

Mrs Wilson, 63, worked in pharmacy since leaving school, taking a six-year break to raise her family and continues to offer advice and support to her patients.

She has held a variety of posts at the St Mary's Road pharmacy, including a dispenser, supervisor and accuracy technician.

She has also been instrumental in the company's Stop Smoking programme and helped on a number of other campaigns, gaining great respect from patients and colleagues alike.
