85th birthday celebrations for Barnsley opticians

Post on 1st September 2023

Our Barnsley branch welcomed a loyal customer of more than 30 years to celebrate her upcoming 85th birthday and the company’s 85th anniversary.

Joan Harford was welcomed into Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care on Market Street where she received a gift in recognition of her loyalty.

Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care is a family run business which was established in 1938 and staff at the Barnsley branch brought out the bunting, balloons and cakes to mark the special anniversary occasion.

Barnsley Branch Manager, Julie Chatterton, said: “We were delighted to mark our special anniversary by welcoming Joan into the branch this week to thank her for more than 30 years of loyalty and celebrate her upcoming milestone birthday! Customers are at the heart of everything we do, and this important ethos has remained in place since the family business was established.

“We look forward to welcoming new and existing customers into the branch to celebrate our anniversary and experience what 85 years of eye and hearing care knowledge looks like!”

Joan, who has lived in Barnsley for 65 years, said: “It was lovely to be invited by the Scrivens team to join their birthday celebrations. It was a wonderful occasion!

“They’re all lovely and make me feel very welcome – that’s why I’ve been a customer for so long. I will celebrate my own 85th birthday next year, so I felt very honoured to mark the beginning of the team’s own anniversary festivities.”
