WHEN its TV ad campaign launched last month, Roberts bakery kicked off its search to find the nation’s most Remarkable Roberts.

And Robert Rimmer, from Northwich, who works for the family-run firm, has been named amongst the very best of them.

Nominated by his wife Janet, Robert is a 59-year old hygiene team employee at the Northwich-based bakery and despite believing that he’s just a pretty normal guy, wife of 20-years Janet begs to differ.

In her nomination, she explained how Robert is a thoroughly amazing family man who lives for her and 19-year old son Jack.

"Everything he does, he does for us," she explains.

And it was, in fact, Roberts bakery where they first met over two decades ago.

Robert and Janet come from a long line of Roberts employees, with their close family racking up a remarkable 200-years+ collective service at the bakery.

Robert’s father-in-law Terry Owen (senior) and brother-in-law Terry Owen (junior) both worked there for over 40 years.

His sister Susan Allen, brother-in-law Malcolm Allen and sister-in-law Julie Selden also clocked up over 30 years each with the company.

Other close family members who were employed by the company for a decade or two include sister-in-law Nicola Owen who left when she had a baby and brother-in-law, and bakery electrician, Nigel Seldon.

Janet said: "Robert is, in every way, remarkable to us.

"But it has to be said that Roberts bakery is pretty remarkable to us, as a family, too.

"Not only did Robert and I first meet there, but it’s also where many of our close family work, or had worked, before retiring.

"It really does put a whole new take on Roberts being a fourth-generation family-run business. Generations of our family have worked there as well."
