175th Birthday Party

On 26th June, Travis Perkins, successors to Newsons, builder’s merchants, celebrated 175 years of supplying building materials to the local area. Residents were invited to attend a hog roast, enjoy tea with sandwiches and cakes and drinks of all kinds to celebrate the event.

 Travis Perkins also had in attendance, a dray in their livery with two beautiful horses.

 It is understood that the yard originally supplied building materials to Thomas Cubitt and his successors in Belgravia. Much of the building supply materials used today come from the same yard.

 Here are a few photographs so that you may enjoy the party, even if you did not attend
