M Nockels Ltd is celebrating its 100th anniversary in Scarborough Market Hall

Mark's grandad, also called Mark, used to work at the butchers in the market hall which was previously owned by a Mr Armstrong before he left the business to serve for his country in the 1st World War. On return from the war Mark returned to work at the butchers and was sold the business in 1919.

Mark senior retired from the business in the early 60s and the reigns were taken over by his son William (Bill) Nockels.

Mark worked at the butchers with his dad Bill before leaving to attend Leeds College to do a Degree in Meat Science and Technology but was still involved in the family business. Bill semi-retired in 1988 and fully retired in 1992 with the business handed over to Mark.

Mark has seen the business go from strength to strength and is still trading from the same corner in the Market Hall following the refurbishment programme.
