2019 summer outing
Our summer 'beano' was reintroduced in 2012 with a company visit to the London Olympics to watch basket ball at Earl’s Court . Now it's less of a 'beano' and more of an educational trip and we have generally focused on visiting interesting buildings and other parts of London; Greenwich , Hampton Court , historic City pubs , Tower of London, The Design Museum and The Serpentine Gallery. We have also bowled, rowed and walked for miles.
This year we went to Hampstead to walk across the Heath and visit 2 Willow Road .Along the way we saw other notable houses, the Hopkins House and Keat's House being just two examples .Read more
The Marston family were traditionally supporters of the temperance movement and disapproved of drinking but despite this it was felt that as everyone worked so hard – including Saturdays - there was a need for everyone to let their hair down and enjoy each others company so during the 1930’s the ‘beano’ was introduced.Read more
Parsons Green Fair 2019
London is made up of ‘villages’ - these villages formed the heart of each community for hundreds of years – well before Industrialisation and the building of the underground network that forms the large global city we know today. This is the third year of Marstons sponsorship of Parsons Green Fair . Being a local company for 124 years it's the Company feels it is important to keep supporting local events . Fulham Good Neighbours volunteers made sure the fair was well organised and fun.
This year was a great success - Saturday 6th July was a warm summers day and Parsons Green hosted just under 10,000 people to watch the entertainments and wander round the stalls while children enjoyed the funfair, petting zoo and donkey rides .Read more
Take a break
Far too many of us sit behind a desk tapping away at a keyboard all day - we know it's not very good for us but we still carry on sitting at our desks to eat our lunch .
At Foundry Mews in Barnes there really is no excuse . Our courtyard and mews planting won a gold medal in the commercial category of Richmond in Bloom 2018. It has been thoughtfully planted to provide a green space all year round and somewhere peaceful to sit in view of the office . The Mews is also just a few minutes walk from Barnes pond and the river - really spoiled for choice .
