A Camden centenarian and the borough’s Mayor visited Specsavers in Camden to celebrate a state-of-the-art refurbishment.

The store recently underwent a large refurbishment, which will provide new facilities, increased space and more efficient services to customers in the town.

The renovation also means there is potential for the creation of up to five jobs.

Some special guests

The store recently celebrated its new look with an event where the special anniversary cake was cut by the Mayor, Councillor Lazzaro Pietragnoli and 101-year-old customer Kathleen Falciola.

The cake was then given out to visitors to the store throughout the day.
