Stewart the milkman set to retire

Milverton’s wonderful milkman, Stewart Floyd, is due to retire at the end of June 2021 aged 65. He has delivered milk from Gundenham Diary (and its predecessors) to his many customers in Milverton for thirty four and a half years. How many of us realise that, in order for us to have milk on our doorsteps, Stewart has to get up each morning at 2.30am – and on occasions, when he has been on holiday and relief milkman has not turned up, he has been telephoned in the early hours asking him to work?

Whatever the weather, come rain, shine, snow, ice etc he is out delivering and he always seems to be smiling, with a kind word to say to everyone he meets.

Stewart loves gardening and in retirement he has lots of plans that he wants to implement in his garden. He is also looking forward to spending more time with his family.

Stewart’s many Milverton customers wish him a long and happy retirement and we all thank him most sincerely for looking after us all so well. We shall miss him.
