A BUTCHERS in Sunningdale is celebrating 90 years of being in business.

As a nation of shopkeepers, family-run businesses have long been a staple of the British high street.

One of the difficulties of running one is the idea of who will take the reins and succeed after every generation.

However, a business which can last 90 years under the same family name is a great achievement and a testament to the family business model.

Lewis of Sunningdale in Chobham Road has celebrated its 90th anniversary of trading.
