It feels good to belong
by Katie Morris
150 years, five generations, one family
The old, the honoured, the past
influence our young, our generation and our future.
The impact it's made on our people, our places, our journey
our reason to be grateful for what’s gone before.
To be proud.
And it all began with a candle.
A spark that ignited something bigger
that would light up our name across the world.
The family name, of family men
dedicated to a Family Business.
All wrapped up in a sense of place
Of being rooted, part of something
that hasn’t changed.
Standing for what it’s always stood for
and no matter who walks these floors, who bears our emblem
who carries this company on their shoulders
we are all family.
Using knowledge, enterprise, endeavour
to build, create and innovate
taking us forward to new horizons.
who built properties and places
and for later on.
it was never just one thing, but it was always the right thing
at the right time.
From butchers, and bakers and candle makers
through World Wars and changing times
through all 150 years,
from 1869 to 2019
one thing has stayed the same.
Intrinsic to what makes us US
Our Values… Family values
It feels good to belong.
