Colin Wright, 76, is celebrating 60 years of working for Northampton cash and carry business Jones Wholesale. He still loves turning up for work as much as ever, and intends to keep going as long as he enjoys good health.
He his first day with the company was Monday, August 17th, 1959. He has worked for four generations of the same family, and his current bosses are the great-grandchildren of the man who first gave him the job.
This is not the only landmark at Jones Wholesale this year: the company is celebrating its centenary year, having been founded by Colin’s first boss, Percy Jones, in 1919.
