A Saturday job led to a career in butchery for Graham Croucher from Downland Butchers who is now retiring after 47 years in the trade.

Sixty-two-year-old Graham, of Meadowlands Avenue in Hampden Park, started the business in East Dean with his wife Julie 23 years ago and has kept it a family affair. But he says regulars need not worry as he will be passing over the reins to his stepson Sam Connor, who remembers helping out in the shop from a young age, and the shop will remain open.

Graham said, “I know the shop will be in safe hands with Sam.”
