BENTS has enjoyed some special milestones in its 77 year history but the 90th birthday of one of its most loyal customers is a first.
Roy Knowles and his wife Joan have visited the Glazebury garden centre every day for 30 years since Roy’s retirement.
The couple, who used to live in Culcheth and now live in Atherton, always pop in for breakfast and did just that for Roy’s 90th birthday.
Matthew Bent, managing director at Bents, who presented Roy with a hamper to celebrate, said: “Roy and Joan feel like part of the Bents’ family.
“Not only have they seen the business grow, they have also seen family members grow, marry, join the business and have children.”
