Britannia Leatherbarrows celebrates 35 years in business

Jan 20, 2017
Britannia Leatherbarrows Removals & Storage Ltd celebrated 35 years in business at Gilbey's Restaurant, Liston Hotel in Bournemouth on Sunday, 6 November in the company of over 100 guests including current and past employees.

The celebration was a family affair, Leatherbarrows Chairman, David Trenchard and wife Diane - who began the Britannia Leatherbarrows journey in 1981 - celebrated this milestone achievement with family members, some of whom travelled down from Inverness to mark the occasion. 
Guests were treated to a buffet and drinks while enjoying a slideshow of archive images showcasing Leatherbarrows’ accomplishments and progression over the years. 

David Trenchard used the occasion to present awards to three employees who have each served the company for 25 years. Terry Rose, Transport, Health and Safety Manager; David Lee and Keith Samways, both removals porter/packers, each received models of Leatherbarrows trucks and an extra week’s holiday. 

David Trenchard said, “The last 25 years have been a roller coaster ride in the road transport industry, especially household removals services, having to survive two very difficult recessionary periods and a number of governmental law changes. Diane and I decided to celebrate with our staff, retired and current, who together with their families have supported and worked with us through all these difficult periods. Ours has always been a true family business, we have appreciated our loyal and hardworking people, many of whom have over 25 years’ service behind them.”
