FB Chain sponsors local mill preservation fundraiser
From web design and travel brokering, to printing, packaging and office supplies, industrial chain manufacturer and supplier FB Chain Ltd. is committed to buying local.
“Our ‘buy local’ policy has brought numerous benefits including increased efficiency, reduced costs and reduced environmental impact. What’s more, it allows us to contribute to the local economy and support other small to medium-sized businesses,” says Peter Church, Managing Director of FB Chain.
Now the Letchworth-based engineering firm aims to give back to the local community in a different way. FB Chain has announced that it is to sponsor the Stotfold Live Rock Music Evening, organised by the Stotfold Mill Preservation Society.
The aim of the event, held on the 11th of May, is to raise funds for the Stotfold mill preservation project. After many years of hard work, Stotfold mill has been fully restored and is one of the country’s only working water mills. However, it still needs lots of care and attention to keep it running and open to the public.
“Stotfold mill is a real treasure and as many of our employees are Stotfold residents, myself included, it is a cause that is close to our hearts,” says Peter Church.
The Stotfold Live Rock Music Evening will precede the mill’s premier annual fundraiser, the Steam Fair and Country Show and will feature two local bands, Trip Fontaine and the Love Reaction from Stotfold and Arlesey and Stevenage-based BLaCK DoG.
Tickets cost £5 and are available from the Stotfold mill website.
