Bromsgrove MP Sajid Javid joins Gough Bailey Wright for 80th birthday celebrations

TOWN MP Sajid Javid paid a visit to a Bromsgrove marketing agency to celebrate the firm's 80th birthday.

Founded in 1936, Gough Bailey Wright has become the oldest independently-owned agency in the West Midlands.

Sue Bailey, managing director of Gough Bailey Wright, said: "It’s fantastic to reach such a milestone in the company’s history is a credit to all those who have gone before us and the current team. We were grateful to Sajid for taking time out of his hectic schedule to join us for the celebration lunch of fish and chips. It was a great day."

The firm's celebrations saw a fish and chip van arrive at St John's House for a lunchtime treat, which was enjoyed by employees and Mr Javid.

He said: "80 years as a business is an impressive achievement and Sue and Michelle should be very proud. The company is a great example of a local business which continues to succeed and create jobs and I look forward to seeing its continued growth in the future.”
