HIDDLESTONE Electrics launched its centenary book today, which is National Family Business Day.

Cecil Hiddlestone started the Subiaco business in 1920 and in anticipation of celebrating 100 years in 2020, the Hiddlestone family is collecting stories and reference materials from the community to produce a memento to mark the milestone.

The centenary book will be dedicated to the memory of the late Cecil Hiddlestone, Vern Hiddlestone, who died in 2014, and other members of the Hiddlestone family as well as those who worked and grew up in the electrical contracting business.

Managing director Natalie Hiddlestone and her sisters grew up running around the original shop in Rokeby Road.

“Later I would help my dad on weekends,” she said.

“We moved into our Townshend Road premises 12 years ago.

“Now, as our centenary year draws closer, we decided that we needed to produce a permanent memento to commemorate this important milestone.”
