Alresford show – The George Cann Trophy

Mr George Cann, the founder of George Cann Garden Machinery, originally moved from Cornwall with his wife Faith, and two children, Steve and Jill and worked for Stiles in Alresford.  In November 1973, with some trepidation, he decided to start his own business, supported by Faith.  Building the business was indeed hard work with very long hours, but with the backing and loyalty of the local people and excellent staff the business grew and a firm foundation was established.  Today Steve and Jill keep the family tradition going, alongside a very dedicated workforce.
