This event at the Discovery Centre in Winchester got the Diamond Jubilee weekend celebrations off to a sparkling start as we had the pleasure of listening to Jeremy give a fascinating insight into the jewellery industry.
He spoke from very personal experience of an armed robbery which took place in his Winchester shop and accompanied this with live video footage as seen on “Crime Watch UK”.
Jeremy explained that after the harrowing robbery he installed a number of security devices including, a state-of-the-art smoke machine, a special smart-water sprinkler system as well as an alert pet dog called Daisy of which all have been put to the test and instrumental in successfully convicting the criminals involved.
