THE boss of a well-known St Helens firm was so happy to see one of his employees celebrate his 20th year with the company that he splashed out on a brand new set of golf clubs as a present.
Phil Leech, of Peasley Cross-based Leech Bedrooms, surprised his first ever employee, experienced kitchen and bedroom fitter Carl Atherton, with a set of brand new Ping golf clubs last week.
He presented them to him at Grange Park Golf Club last Wednesday (August 3). Mr Leech said: “Carl has just celebrated 20 years with us and is still going strong so I thought he deserved an extra special present.
“He’s been with us since he left school and is a first-class tradesman and a wonderful employee – he really is worth his weight in gold.
“Carl was made up with his present and I couldn’t be happier.”
