John Hughes & Son, Amlwch
In the early 1900's, John Hughes worked as an apprentice for Griffith Pritchard (Emporium) before taking over the business many years later. He brought his son, Also named John, into the business and subsequently formed John Hughes & Son. They both worked hard and established a business which was (and still is) regarded as professional, caring, and synonymous with that which is best in a family run business. John Hughes (Senior) retired in 1967.
John worked tirelessly to maintain the work his father had started and also served the community not only through the business but in many public and charitable roles.
Gradually, John brought his family - his wife Phyllis and sons Arwel and Ieuan into the business and they subsequently took over the running when he became ill. John sadly, passed away in 2003.
