Bako North Western is planning a year of celebrations to mark its 50th year in business.

The activities include money-off promotions, prize giveaways, a birthday cake competition, and a party in August next year.

Mark Tomlinson, chief executive, said: “It is a real milestone in the history of our company and we want customers and staff alike to join us in celebrating this momentous occasion.”

The firm said that, as part of the celebrations, it will be looking back at the company over the past 50 years, from the four craft bakers who established BAKO NW in the back room of a pub in 1964 and its first registered office in Warrington, to the 150 employee-strong business it has grown into today.
