Pennells Garden Centres recently marked the long service of a member of staff at their Lincoln centre with a presentation.
Mr Trevor Smith celebrated fifty years working for the company, matching the length of service his father Fred Smith also gave to the company!
Trevor first started work at the company’s nurseries in 1963 at Brant Road, working under his father's tutelage. He then worked as a plant propagator for many years before later moving to the garden centre in South Hykeham as a sales assistant.
Trevor was presented with the Royal Horticultural Society’s long service medal with bar in recognition of his 50 years’ service to the company and the industry by the company’s managing director Richard Pennell.
Mr Richard Pennell, Managing Director commented, “The success of the business is due to the skill and knowledge of our team members of which Trevor is an outstanding example. My thanks go to him for the major contribution he and his family have made to the business over the years.”
