FRAMPTON-based The Cullimore Group celebrated its 90th anniversary with events for customers, business partners and staff at the Whitminster Inn.

A spectrum of trucks from yesteryear and brand new additions to the 40-strong fleet of trucks were showcased for people to view in the grounds.

More than 350 people took part in the celebrations which included a performance by Somerset-based band Funkty Dumpty inside a giant marquee.

Moreton Cullimore, managing director at The Cullimore Group, said: “It was fantastic to see so many people at both our staff evening on September 1 and main event on September 2.

“We felt very honoured to be in everyone’s company, and hope that all who attended enjoyed themselves.

“Our business has been passed down through three generations, from my grandfather to my father to me.

“This personal family philosophy is something we maintain at all times, all the while providing a professional, modern outlook to our customers.

“It is this backbone that has proved vital to the continuing success of our business, and is the reason that our staff, suppliers and customers stay with us for a very long time.

“Here’s to the next 90 years!”

The Cullimore Group is very proud of its history, from the original purchase of a second-hand truck by Moreton C. Cullimore that transported milk, produce and livestock from his farm to local markets in the Gloucestershire area that started it all off, to the multi-million-pound business it is today.

Throughout the years, the ethos of the group has always been to provide the local communities with bulked and bagged aggregates, ready mixed concrete and recycled aggregates all the while embracing new practices, standards and technologies but not at the sacrifice of respecting and remembering the past.

The Cullimore Group will have a stand at the Frampton Country Fair, where it is main show sponsor, on Saturday, September 10.

The fair is held in 30 acres of parkland within the Frampton Country Estate, and is one of the largest traditional country fairs in the UK.
