A FORMER pupil of Bowland High School, Grindleton, is ready to tap into a great opportunity with a Ribble Valley company.

Jonny Eccleston has taken over as the new manager at the fast-expanding Clitheroe depot of James Hargreaves Plumbers Merchants.

Jonny (33), brings a wealth of experience in the plumbing industry to the role, which finally sees him settled after three years as a “floating” manager.

“It’s like a home-coming for me,” he said. “I have worked for the company as a floating manager at the Accrington, Blackburn, Nelson and Rawtenstall branches over the past three years, which has proved invaluable.

“Now I feel well positioned to take on a branch in my own right and where better than my home town?”

Jonny, who has a partner, Lisa Marie, and stepdaughter, Georgia, studied building and surveying during his student days at Blackburn College. Away from work, he enjoys photography.
