Optician editor Chris Bennett held an impromptu opening of Grafton Optical’s new headquarters in Berkhamsted recently.

While on a visit to the new site Bennett asked managing director Brian Bowles when the official opening would be taking place. Grafton’s former HQ in Watford was opened by a local dignitary so who would be doing the honours?

Not one to spend time pondering Bowles immediately extended an invitation for Bennett to do the honours.
