After learning how to bake in his mum’s kitchen as a child, Graham Robinson is celebrating 30 years working at Cherrytree Bakery.  

Back in 1991 – the year when Bryan Adams made history with his (Everything I Do) I Do It for You, The Big Issue was launched and Helen Sharman became the first British person in space, Graham joined the bakery in Billington Road, Burnley, straight from school. 

Graham has witnessed significant change across the company – but says he still loves his job three decades later. 

Graham, 46, from Burnley, said: “I can’t believe I have been here for 30 years. I enjoy coming to work and I’m sure I’ll be here a while longer yet. 

 “It makes all the difference when you know you’re part of a team and although I’ve seen many changes over the years to the processes and technology that we use, the company has always offered great training and support. 

Graham has enjoyed a variety of roles across the company.   

Colleagues threw a celebratory event in his honour, presented him with £200 in vouchers, a bottle of whiskey and a large Cherrytree Bakery celebration cake to mark the milestone.
