Celebrating 50 years of a local business – Leafield Marine

Michelle Donelan visiting Leafield Marine in Atworth
Wonderful to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Leafield Marine and their move this year to Atworth Bunnies Park. They are world leaders in the production of marine valves and 99% of all life rafts have their products. They export to 50 countries and 80% of their products are exported.

This expanding company hires 45 local people from Wiltshire and is continuing to grow – now as a successful rural enterprise. It is companies like this that need support to continue to invest in local people.

It was also lovely to see lots of local people involved in the celebrations including help from the WI.
