Employee mourned

Wine Cellar is mourning the death of one of its longest-serving managers, Julia Ann Hatton, who died suddenly last month aged 66.

Julia was "a stalwart figure"

the company said,

whose career with the chain in its various guises spanned 31 years.

In 1991 her shop at Lymm in Cheshire was highly commended in the OLN Off- licence of the Year awards and the following year won the Multiple Specialist category.
