Snow Hits Uckfield

Well who would have thought we would have this much snow in Uckfield with tomorrow being 1st March.

Doing our bit for the community it was all hands to the shovels as we cleared and salted the private pathway from the Regency Close car park round our office to the High Street so it can be walked safely – at the moment. 

We had one stop to push a lorry out of the car park which had been delivering to Thai Terre restaurant.

With more snow forecast and low temperatures please take care. Even treated surfaces can be slippery.

Sussex Heritage 2018 Awards Launch at The Depot in Lewes

Chris & Julia Lawson attended the launch of the 2018 Sussex Heritage Trust Awards at The Depot in Lewes. This is the 20th year of the Awards and Lawson Commercial was very pleased to be supporting it once again. Lawson Commercial have been one of the sponsors for over 12 years believing this to be a very worthy charity to support. This year the launch took place in The Depot, Lewes’s new 3 screen community cinema constructed in a building which was last used as a Harveys Brewery warehouse and attendees heard a very interesting presentation from the Architects of the project which won a Sussex Heritage award in 2017.

The launch was attended by Trustees of the charity together with sponsors, judges and other supporters of the Awards. It began with a most convivial reception in the lobby area. 

Pictured here with Chris Lawson are Ken Hooker (left) of Proteus Packaging, a sponsor and judge, and Nick Jones (centre) of Glynde Estates, a winner of several previous awards.

The formal launch was made by Dr John Godfrey, Chairman of the Trust, in Screen One followed by a tour of the complex.

Entries for the 2018 Awards are now being sought and it is a really well worth scheme to take part in with entries, which can be made by owners architects, contractors or anyone involved in a project, closing on 13th April . Teams of judges, all volunteers, go out in mid-May with the Awards being presented at a lunch in July.
