A business marked its 50,000th customer by giving away a free skip and prize.
Bourne Skip Hire, in Cherryholt Road, hit its milestone on Wednesday morning and awarded a bottle of champagne and a free skip to Lucy Sandall of Sandall Roofing, which has been a regular customer since the skip hire company was founded in 2002.
Managing director Chris Seggie said: “We’ve been in business for 10 years and we’ve had the 50,000th customer which is a bit of a landmark.
“We have kept a careful track on the number of skips through our invoices and with the 50,000th coming up we thought we would mark the occasion by doing something nice.
“We would like to thank all our customers who have supported us over the years.”
Winner of the prize Lucy said: “It was a nice surprise. We are regular customers. They are a local business and so are we and it is always nice to try and keep business in Bourne.”
