A long-standing Thirsk market trader has retired after 40 years of selling goods.
Ravinder Singh started trading as R M Fashions in 1976 with his brother Mohinder selling ladies fashions.
Ravinder traded at Thirsk Markets and Mohinder at Northallerton Markets.
Shoppers will still see R M Fashions at Thirsk as Mohinder will be operating at the Monday market in addition to his stalls at Northallerton.
Andy Gunn-Newlove, Thirsk market superintendent, said: “Since I joined the market team in 2007 Mr Singh has always been an inspiration to me.
“His punctuality and eye for detail has always amazed me. I could set my watch by his arrival time.
“Mr Singh has added his own personal touch and vibrancy to our market for 40 years, and I and the rest of the market team along with fellow market traders wish him a long and happy retirement.”
There is still room for more traders at Thirsk Markets on Mondays and Saturdays.
