In memory of June Baker – by Nick Baker

June and Bob Baker founded Sports Trophies and Engravers Ltd in 1972 in the vacant shop next to her fathers’ jewellers in Upper George Street, Luton. Then in 1989, the business was relocated to new premises still in Luton on New Bedford Road, where it became one of the largest showrooms for trophies and awards in the UK. 1992 saw the company relocated for a second time to Bedford Business Centre, Bedford.
