An award introduced at the Grantham Journal Organization Awards has been renamed in memory of a very well-highly regarded area retailer.
The Unbiased Retail Award has been renamed the John Cussell Independent Retailer of the Calendar year Award in honour of the jeweller who regrettably died a couple months ago at the age of 74.
John ran his jewelry shop in Westgate for above 40 many years with spouse Jenni. The renowned silversmith and Freeman of the Town of London will be most fondly remembered throughout Grantham for the hundreds of valuable items of jewelry he manufactured, not only for nearby households but for people today all over the environment with commissions as much afield as Australia.
John’s daughter Chloe reported: “Thank you to all people which include the judges for thinking of honouring John in this way. It is wholly unexpected but I concur it is incredibly fitting thanks to what John did to winner impartial vendors in the town, the neighborhood as a total and also becoming a great unbiased retailer himself.
“Thanks all over again for these a fitting tribute. I’m positive John would be incredibly proud.”
