There was a familiar face at work for Ian March, SM Delicatessen/Patisserie at Bishops Stortford.

It was his 11-year old daughter Jade whose school was running a 'Shadow Your Parent Day'.

She spent the day following her father through his work.  She attended planning meetings and spent time serving on the counters under supervision as well as observing the ordering system's.

Ian, who has been a Waitrose Partner for 22 years said: "She enjoyed her day very much, in fact she did not want to go home.  When my day finished at 6 pm, she wanted to stay until the shop closed.  It was a useful experience".
