Gerald Brown

Gerald Brown
09/02/2016

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the sudden death of our father Gerald Brown after a short illness. Gerry formed Abbey back in 1982 after 20 years in the equestrian industry and the business is a testament to his courage and his timeless values of personal service and “nothing is too much trouble for our customers”. He was to be seen in work every morning in recent months still checking up on us all and making sure that we are working hard to make customers happy and able to produce their products in a timely fashion whatever the industry.

We have received many comments along the lines of a real gentleman and an inspiration for those in the saddlery trade who regard our father`s efforts to support their businesses as the main reason that they are still trading today. Thank you to all those who have taken the trouble to let us know how they feel. We will always treasure the Life Time Achievement award given by BETA some six years ago and Abbey England Ltd will try to maintain the very close relationship with all working saddlers at all levels through the trade.

Whilst our loss is still raw and keenly felt we are trying to keep up with all of our customer`s requests and will be working hard to maintain the present turnaround of the orders except on Friday 12th February when the Knutsford Head Office and warehouse will be closed all day for the funeral.
