It is with great regret that we have to announce the passing of Robin Nettle, our Managing Director, at the age of 69 after a short but brave battle with cancer. Robin – along with his business partner, Andy Hoskings - founded Winchester Garden Machinery in 1970 and over the following years, built it into one of the largest and most respected garden machinery companies in the country. Robin’s professionalism, humour, and profound knowledge of the business earned him huge respect among customers and suppliers alike, and his passing will be keenly felt across the industry.
Robin’s funeral will be held on May 17th, as a consequence all our showrooms and workshops will be closed for the day, therefore any orders placed after 5.30pm on Wednesday will be processed upon our return on Friday. This also means our Phones will not be being monitored.
