AFTER 13 years, popular motors' representative Tina Seymour has said goodbye to the Star.

The paper's management and staff bade farewell to her at a lunch at the Bella Vista, Crondall.

Thanking Tina for her efforts, managing director Fred Franklin said she had played an important part in the Star's success.

He presented her with a mock-up front page of the paper headlined "Cor-Tina", and other gifts.

Her many motor trade clients also sent her a "Good Luck" card.

Tina, one of the Star's longest serving employees, is moving to Wiltshire with her husband, Graham, and daughter Hayley, aged seven.

She said: "I've been proud to work for the Star which I believe is still the best paper in the area."
