New manager for James Hargreaves

Published:  20 December, 2011

CLITHEROE: Jonny Eccleston has taken over as the new manager at the Clitheroe depot of James Hargreaves Plumbers Merchants.

Mr Eccleston, 33, brings a wealth of experience in the plumbing industry to the role, which finally sees him settled after three years as a "floating" manager.

"It's like a home-coming for me," he said. "I have worked for the company as a floating manager at the Accrington, Blackburn, Nelson and Rawtenstall branches over the past three years, which has proved invaluable.

"Now I feel well-positioned to take on a branch in my own right and where better than my home town."
