Rotary Meetings

Guest Speaker

Thursday 6th Apr 2017 | Steward: Nigel Pullen / John Clare

  Kermit, Miss Piggy and the Muppets pop into a meeting  



Jonathan Warburton,  Executive Chairman of Warburton's Bakery, was given a very warm welcome as our guest speaker at the meeting on April 6th. It is a family business founded by Thomas and Ellen Warburton in 1876. Prior to his talk for approximately 2 minutes Rotary members plus many guests enjoyed a viewing of Mr Warburton's meeting with Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and the rest of the delightful Muppets. I refer of course to the company's hugely entertaining advertisement which successfully promoted sales of giant crumpets just one of the company's quality food products. There are 12 bakeries and 14 depots located around the UK providing employment for 4,500 people.  Over 2 million bakery products are produced daily including wax wrapped loaves, wraps, crumpets, pancakes and bread rolls.
