Is Mick Southport’s longest serving employee?

Southport’s Mike Milner has been working for the same family business for the past 52 years and still has no plans to retire.

75-year-old Mick started working for local car dismantlers Ben Johnson back in 1961 when they operated from a plot of lane on Town Lane, Kew.

Hundreds of people would visit the yard each week searching for second-hand car parts at affordable prices. Also working in the team back then was Paddy, do you remember him?

Houses were built on the land in the late 90’s when the firm relocated to Crowland Street.

Mike is still working for the same family business today and when asked the question “when are you going to retire” he said “I have no plans to retire in the near future”.

The family business Johnsons of Southport is still a thriving business today!

Do you know anyone who has worked more than half a century is the same job in Southport?
