Portstewart Traders’ Association held a retirement dinner in the Anchorage on Tuesday for three long-standing business owners.

McElhone’s Pharmacy, Dempseys and McIntyre’s Newsagents have all retired over the past 12 months - clocking up a massive 130 years service between them!

The business owners - Paul McElhone, Jimmy Dempsey and John McDowel - were each presented with a photo of the town, a watercolour of their business premises and a card, signed by all the other traders.

NB - don’t forget that Portstewart Christmas Lights switch on is Saturday, 25th November 25.

Come and see Santa, everyone welcome!
