Having been born and brought up in Alnwick, I have never ceased to be amazed at the kindness and generosity of the people of this wonderful place.
I need an opportunity to thank all of my customers, family and friends for all their support over the 40-odd years since I got involved in G Penrose and Sons.
I have never regretted returning to Alnwick in 1976, and that is all down to them.
The other great part in this situation is that Guy and Sarah Filer, who have bought the business, are an absolute credit to themselves and their family.
I know that, heartrending as it is to leave, I could not have left the business in safer hands.
Thanks again to you all.
G Penrose and Sons
