May Newsletter – ‘Fred’ Retires, Memory Lane and POTM

Welcome to May’s E-Newsletter! In this issue we look at: Fred’s ‘retirement’, A visual trip down memory lane, The Product of the Month; ASH

‘Front-End Fred’ retires

(at least from Littlehampton Brick Co!)

As some of you may know, retirements are very rare here and Littlehampton Brick Co, with many of our employees having clocked up 20+ years! Remember Edga’s 30 years article a couple of months ago?
Our front-end loader (or as we like to call him ‘Front-end Fred’) is one such team member. We can’t remember the exact date Fred ‘started’ but we know it was a long, long time ago! He has served faithfully throughout the years and moved more clay, sand, grit, and other materials than even his manfacturers probably thought possible!

Alas, it’s finally time for Fred to move on.. No, he’s not retiring totally.. Fred is still well-maintained so we will likely be selling Fred in the coming months to go to work in a nice new home! Here’s a few photos we snapped of Fred on his last day;

As for Fred’s replacement?

A fresh new machine from CAT will be taking on the workload of Fred’s position. Here’s some images of him arriving at the yard fresh and clean (which is unlikely to last with all this clay around the place!)

Photos from the archives..

There’s over 100 years of history at littlehampton brick co.. And every image tells a different story. Every now and then it’s nice to review how far we’ve come. Enjoy these photos from our archives.

Product of the Month: ASH

Modern Grey from Natural Clay

Ash is the first grey range from Littlehampton Brick Co. More and more architects, designers and home owners are wanting to have modern grey tones, without having to use concrete products. Thats why Ash is proving to be so popular, it’s the modern look, made with 100% natural locally sourced clay –just like all our products!
