Butter-Fly on the Wall

September, 11 2012


At National Numbers we pride ourselves as being part of the surrounding community. We enjoy nothing more than helping out our neighbours, especially when they pop in for a visit.

But did he compare with other number plates?

Yesterday we had a visit from a lovely gentleman named Gareth Welsh. The name may not ring a bell but if you grew up locally around the Cleveland area you will have probably heard about his business: Butterfly World.

Butterfly World is an exotic place creating a tropical environment for rare and endangered species of butterfly, a subject that Gareth is very passionate about. Butterfly World also houses different breeds of lizard, snakes, spiders and insects, and also has some very popular Meerkats on display.

As many of us here at National Numbers have been to Butterfly World as a child or as a parent we enjoyed having Gareth in the office.

“I’ve always wanted a private number plate,” says Gareth. “It just popped into my head one morning so I went ahead and started looking.”

Gareth soon found his future number plate, BW02 FLY, on our website and later dropped into the office to speak to Lenny, a member of our sales team, to put the order through.

“I wanted BUTTERFLY obviously but I couldn’t find anything like that so I thought ‘BW’ for ‘Butterfly World’ would be good and ‘FLY’ on the end as well.”

We are now waiting for the DVLA to process everything and sent out Gareth’s new number plate that will go on his Jaguar X-type in the next couple of weeks.

If like Gareth you’ve always wanted a private registration or you just want something to help promote your local business just give us a call, we have a friendly team of staff ready and waiting to guide you towards your perfect registration.
