So Long Sandbach


Sandbach man, John Holgate , 60, is saying farewell to Crewe based, Swansway Motor Group.


John has been Finance Director at the family owned and run business since the beginning; Michael Smyth, Chairman of Swansway Motor Group commented, “John has helped us steer the business to where it is today, in the top five privately owned motor groups in the UK and thus we have much to thank him for

“Swansway owes a big thank-you to John, for everything he’s done over the last 14 years. He’s certainly earned a rest, along with his wife Shirley, and we wish them both a long, happy and sunny retirement in Spain”, added Michael.

John celebrated his sixtieth birthday earlier this year and to celebrate Swansway bought him a rather special bike; John’s now competed in and completed his first triathlon, he added, “Shirley and I will miss Sandbach and of course I’ll miss my colleagues at Swansway, but this is such an exciting new chapter in our lives, over in Spain, and we can’t wait”!
