Osborne’s Sport & Toys celebrates its 65th Anniversary
Rushden high street's longstanding toy shop, Osborne's Sport & Toys celebrates its 65th Anniversary! Today also marks the 5 year anniversary of the passing of Jim Osborne, the much loved-founder.
Special 65th anniversary jigsaws have been commissioned to commemorate the milestone 65th year of trading. The jigsaws are on sale from today, with a donation from each one sold going to the local Rushden Museum.
Mayor Cesare Marinaro visited to congratulate Pam Osborne, her son Will, and all the staff at Osborne's on behalf of Rushden Town Council. The Mayor said these words, "it's such a great achievement, reaching sixty five years on our high street. It's also such an inspiration to see Pam Osborne at 87 year of age, continuing to work in the shop. Rushden is truly honoured and we wish them all the very best."
Will Osborne commented, "We've been overwhelmed by the good wishes and support of everyone, especially in these difficult times. So a big thank you to our past, present and future customers."
Congratulations to the Osborne's Family, what a remarkable milestone to reach.
