A FLOWER shop van driver has delivered his 50,000th bouquet of flowers, writes Camilla James.
Glyn Whitaker, 69, has worked for Wards The Florist, of Clifford Street, York, for 16 years. He made his milestone delivery to long-standing customer Mandie Chapman, of Sutton-upon-Derwent, who had been sent birthday flowers by her daughter.
Mr Whitaker said: “It’s such an achievement and a fantastic landmark to make my 50,000th delivery in the company’s 110th year of trading.”
