Pharmacy technician Barbara Sloan celebrated 40 years service with Boots the Chemist this month.

Barbara has worked all her life in Girvan and began her career with the Robert Douglas chemist.

The Baddens company then took over the store before Alliance chemists and then Boots finally took over the store in Girvan.

Boots presented a card and a gift voucher and colleagues presented Barbara with flowers and a cake.

Barbara received the award from Boots earlier this month.

Boots said in its official newsletter distributed to all staff across the nation: “We hope Barbara has enjoyed these 40 years and is looking forward to many more years to come.”

Barbara said: “I would like to thank Boots for recognising the 40 years achievement and to Jacqueline and the girls for the flowers and the cake.”

Jacqueline Sloan, store manager, said: “Congratulations on the fantastic achievement of 40 years in pharmacy.”
