Nigel Marks leaves Hereford branch to spend time with family.

F Hinds store manager Nigel Marks is bidding farewell to the Hereford branch of the national jewellery chain that he has worked at for the past 25 years.

Marks first started working at the shop, which is located on the corner of Eign Gate in Hereford, in 1987 and has now decided to retire from his long career in the jewellery industry to spend more time with friends and family.


During his time working at the Hereford branch of F Hinds, Marks has had his fare share of celebrity customers, including comedian Norman Wisdom, Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant and the singers from girl group Eternal.

Marks told local paper The Hereford Times: “The best person I ever met was when Norman Wisdom came into the shop. I said to him ‘do you want to buy a watch?’ and he came in and bought one off me. He came back two or three times and was so polite. He had his cap on and would raise it to all the ladies in the shop.”
