Suttons Annual Excursion 1914

Suttons has always looked after its staff and we’re a pretty sociable bunch but we no longer have the luxury of a company organised annual excursion!

The leaflet pictured below shows that 100 years ago on 19th June 1914 the whole company had a day trip by train from Reading to Margate. I wonder how much ice cream was consumed and do hope that the sun shone for them.

It’s good to know that fun was still being had right up to August when the world changed with the start of the First World War.

About Lis

Our Suttons Blog comes from Lis Wallace, Head of Customer Service here at Suttons since 2002. Living on the edge of Dartmoor Lis has a large and “somewhat tricky” garden split across several levels but with the bonus of a stream tumbling through and a large, fertile veg patch. Across the blog Lis will share some of the knowledge she has gained over the years from her father, from working at Suttons and also from her own trial and error. Storm the Jack Russell is bound to chip in now and then. That’s what terriers do!
