A market trader known as ‘John the wool man’ was given a ‘this is your life’ book from his Hatfield customers.
To honour his dedication, he was given the book of memories on Wednesday, October 9 by Lynda McCard and Debbie Anne Thorpe as a way of celebrating his forty years of trading.
Ms McCard said: "I have known John, the wool man, for over 40 years as we both were stall holders on Hatfield market at one time.
"During that time he has been loyal to his customers who in turn have been loyal to him, having enjoyed his friendly and helpful way of doing business.
"He has also helped to keep the market going with his regular attendance.
