Celebrating Half A Century on Sark
Customers at the grocery store Foodstop were invited to help the shop’s owner, Julie Baker, celebrate fifty years of life on Sark this week. Julie first visited Sark on holiday in 1964. She fell in the love with island and on the boat home vowed to return to live, which she did a year later. Customers were offered Pimms and party food to celebrate in Julie’s shop and she also gave everyone ten percent off their groceries as part of the fun. Many thanks Julie and here’s to the next half a century!
