FOWLES Funeral Services, based in Delamere Street, Winsford, has been named Regional Funeral Planner of the Year for the second time.

The prestigious award was presented by Golden Charter - the leading provider of funeral plans through independent funeral companies in the UK.

Fowles, which is Winsford’s only independent funeral service, collected the award at the annual ceremony held in London.

The family business was represented by Dave Fowles and Craig Murray, who were presented with the award by Dan Walker of BBC Breakfast and BBC Sport fame.

Dave said: “We are so proud of this achievement and we are equally proud to serve the wonderful people of Winsford.

“We are a family firm going back many generations and have served Winsford and the surrounding towns and villages for over 200 years.”

“We want to give something back to our customers, as a thank you for them coming to us and trusting us to look after them and their loved ones.”

As a thank you to the town for helping them win the award, Fowles is going to give a £25 donation to St Luke’s Hospice, based in Winsford, for every funeral plan taken out with them during the month of October.
