It is with great sadness that we announce the death of a highly-respected member of the Furrows family – John Bennett.

John’s career with us began in 1951 and spanned almost 50 years. At the time of his retirement in January 1999, he was Managing Director of the Group.

John was a well-respected business man, with close ties throughout Shropshire. He was also heavily involved in the local cricket community including President of Wroxeter Cricket Club, Chairman of Montgomeryshire and Chairman of the Shropshire Cricket Board. A sound, trusted friend and a true gentleman.

A treasured colleague and friend to all at Furrows – John will be very sadly missed.
