It was with mixed emotions that Burlington Stone thanked Terry Armistead, Production Manager, for his dedication to the business over the past 48 years and to wish him well in his retirement at a special party on Friday 5th May 2017. Having joined Burlington Stone at the age of 15, Terry has played a key role within the production facility at Kirkby-in-Furness. The vast knowledge and experience he has gained over the past 48 years, along with his “can-do” attitude means he will be greatly missed by colleagues and customers alike. Luckily, Terry has kindly agreed to continue to work for Burlington for a couple of days per week.
Chairman, Lucy Cavendish, along with Lord and Lady Cavendish, led the presentation of thanks and appreciation to Terry and the party allowed current and past colleagues to thank Terry for all he has done for the business.
We all wish him well.
Burlington Stone will once again be exhibiting this year at the Marmomacc International Trade Fair for Stone, Design and Technology, which is taking place in Verona from 26th – 29th September 2016. Burlington Stone continue to enjoy meeting new and existing customers at the exhibition and are looking forward to another successful show.
Following the introduction of "Burly" on to the Fells last month, "Burly" has now been joined by "Pebbles". Last month, the Holker Group offered their support in aid of the ‘Go Herdwick’ public art trail, recently launched by the Lake District Calvert Trust charity who aims to raise £1.3million through the initiative for their 40th anniversary fundraising campaign.
A number of Lake District businesses and organisations have pledged their support in aid of the ‘Go Herdwick’ public art trail, recently launched by the Lake District Calvert Trust charity who aims to raise £1.3million through the initiative for their 40th anniversary fundraising campaign. The Holker Group sponsored one of the 60 Herdwick Ewes, each designed and painted by a local artist and put on display in public places and outside business premises between Keswick and Windermere in the Lake District. The idea is for visitors and indeed local people to go ‘Herdy spotting’ and follow the Herdwick Trail by purchasing one of the maps available in local shops and tourist centres. The flock was ‘released’ on Good Friday, 25th March and will remain in-situ until September when they will be rounded up for a public viewing and subsequent auction in the autumn.
