Michael has covered the same round for 30 years
Wimbledon-based milk&more milkman Michael Keirle has delivered his last pinta, ending three decades on the job. Michael will now be handing over the milk-bottle-baton to his colleague, experienced milkman Tony Zammit.
Michael (pictured right) covers the Ashtead and Epsom areas and has been doing the same round for the 30 years he has been a milkman.
He has been part of the local community and in his time has been quite the hero. When one of his customers went missing he successfully joined forces with the postman to help find him, when even the police helicopters had failed!
Michael says his customers appreciate the reliability and regularity of the milk&more service – come rain or shine. But he does admit looking forward to having the occasional lie-in and not having to get up quite so early. He is also looking forward to enjoying a spot of gardening and some cricket now in his retirement.
Michael's customers will be well looked after by Tony Zammit, who has also been a milkman for more than 30 years.
Depot Manager, Trevor Sayer said: "We will really miss Michael – his reliability and commitment to the job has been second to none. The whole team here at Wimbledon wishes him well in his retirement."
