Jack Smith, the Auchenblae postman for the past 30 years, retired last month and the village held a reception in his honour, which was attended by around 100 people.

David, the proprietor of the Auchenblae Old Post Office Tearoom and Shoppe, provided refreshments and Jack was presented with money and gifts that had been collected for him.

Jack will be sorely missed as he was a very popular postman, who went beyond the call of duty on a daily basis.

He is pictured at the bash with his wife, Helen.
