SATURDAY marked a special day in Ixworth as two residents celebrated their birthdays, along with Patricia Larman who celebrated a year of running the village post office.

A poster displayed in the post office window invited villagers to take part in the happy celebrations, with Champagne and birthday cake on offer to all.

“I wanted to say thank you to the customers, said Mrs Larman, who has previously run post offices in Stanningfield and Sicklesmere.

“I’m loving every minute of it. My customers have been a delight – I actually look forward to coming to work.”

Annie Atkins’ family arranged for the church bells to ring out in honour of her 100th birthday and she popped along to the shop to celebrate.

“I’ve had a lovely time – hearing the bells was a real surprise,” she said.

Nicola Bax also joined in to celebrate her 40th birthday.
