Our Lovely Liz… Our first Local Hero.

Liz has lived in Eastington for over 53 years.

She was born here and lived in Puddlesworth Lane with her mum and dad. Puddlesworth Lane is no longer a lane but is now the M5!

As a young girl she moved with her parents to Frocester and then later back to Eastington. Liz attended Eastington Primary school and then went on to Maidenhill School.

When she left school she worked in Stroud, firstly at Elizabeth Wool shop and then at Bellmans Clothes shop.

Liz has two sons, Dale and Lee, and two granddaughters who she loves to care for when she’s not working. She also enjoys reading and gardening.
Liz has worked at Eastington Post Office for nearly 35 years!

When she started it was situated around the corner before moving into the village shop. During her 35 years Liz has seen the shop change from a Spar to Londis and finally the Co-op.

Working at the post office has certainly changed over the past 35 years. Not the least moving from book work to everything being computerised.
Liz says she loves her job as it is different every day. She meets so many lovely people from the village, with many wanting to stop for a chat. This was certainly the case when I went to meet with her.

Liz,  you are definitely a local hero with your cheerful disposition and happy smile!. We are really lucky to have you – A big thank you from us all!
