Several months ago I wrote about a reliable relief manager. I hadn’t spoken to him because he was always on answer phone (busy bloke).

A reader (Steve Atkinson, Easingwold, near York) showed him the copy while he was relief managing there and he has now contacted me.

He is Stephen Mark Hitch of Retail Relief Services. His email address is, mobile 07857 455328. His web address is and landline is 01924 496379.

Go for it people - next year is almost upon us. And, unfortunately, there seems to be only one Stephen Hitch.
