Felicity Hayes

Retail Supervisor in Padstow

After joining our retail team for the summer season in 2017, Felicity was made a permanent member of staff and then thanks to her enthusiasm and hard work was promoted to supervisor in 2018. She grew up in the Shropshire countryside before moving to the south coast for university to study International Hospitality Management in Brighton. During her degree she realised she adored being by the sea and after graduating with a 1st, made the move to Cornwall to join the team at our deli. Rick is one of her food heroes, after watching him on TV for many years with her parents, so the chance to start her career with us in Padstow was a fab opportunity.

Shortly after making the move down she also started volunteering at the Newquay Food Bank to meet new people and support with packing boxes and sorting deliveries to go out to vulnerable people in the area. Last autumn Felicity spotted a way of combining her role at our deli and the food bank, giving weekly donations of fresh food to St Petroc’s Hostel that would otherwise go to waste, including bread, fish, meat, salads, pies and more. She also rallied all our Cornish businesses to support their pre-Christmas dried goods campaign, donating seven large crates of tins and cans in the process. When not at work, she loves cooking, taking inspiration from all fresh produce in our deli, and spending times outdoors, especially geocaching – which if you haven’t tried it is like an international treasure hunt!
