All in a Day’s (and night’s) Work

LCEU jetters were on hand to help restore order to communities following the recent bad weather.

Anglesey was particularly badly hit and our on call crew was immediately mobilised to the worst hit area when floodwaters rushed through the centre of Llangefni after the river burst its banks.

Battling against atrocious conditions Phil and Nathan worked throughout the night and were supported the next day by our other crew Paul and Harry with both crews working tirelessly supporting customers the length and breadth of the island.

Henllan Still At The Top

Henllan FC has notched up its second championship title in as many years. Having survived a lean few years in the Llandyrnog and District Summer League the team, sponsored by Lawson Civil Engineering and Utilities Ltd, was crowned 2016 champions. Having tasted success and liking it they weren’t, however, about to relinquish their title and retained it this season (2017) in convincing fashion with two games to spare.

Now the club hopes to go one better than last year by also beating Llanfair to clinch the league’s prestigious Tony Evans Memorial Shield – settling old score, proving Henllan FC is a force to be reckoned with and the ones to be beaten.

He set up the company in 2000 having worked for more than 20 years in the business and has watched the company grow into a multi-million pound pioneer in its field, employing a dedicated and highly qualified workforce of men and women working across both the private and public sectors.Despite its extensive and rapid growth, Lawson has at its heart the values instilled into Frank Lawson Snr at an early age and which still drives the company today “An honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay”. He and his wife Angeline, LCEU’s Senior Director, both bring their strong morals, principles and values to the business. They have also passed these on to their children, all of whom are directors of the company and who play an integral part in the family business. Furthermore, Frank has passed these morals, principles and values on to his wider family – his workforce, and these are the foundations of his company.

Frank’s aim has always been to set high standards, deliver a quality of service to all clients and to offer quality positions to all employees whilst instilling in them a positive proactive approach. It is this ethos which has seen Lawsons grow into the success it is today. Investing in its current workforce is as important to the company as is developing youngsters coming into the industry by giving them the skills which will benefit them in the future, and they have a rigorous training program for all Operational and Administrative staff based upon their individual needs.

Community is also very important to the Lawson family and LCEU is proud to support many local individuals and initiatives. Denbigh man Owen Gallagher, Welsh and British BBU Cruiserweight Champion, successfully defended his British title twice under the company’s sponsorship, the long established Henllan Football Club, one of the premier teams in the Llandyrnog and District Summer League, benefits annually for their kit sponsorship as does the junior team who play in the Rhyl and District League.

Christmas Hats off (and a big thank you) to LCEU Directors

The Lawson workforce, all suited and booted, stepped out with their partners for their annual Christmas dinner and dance recently. This much anticipated all expenses paid annual event is hosted by the LCEU Directors, and was this year held at the St George Hotel, Llandudno on Friday evening, December 16th 2016.

So as not to leave out the younger members of the family, LCEU Directors also hosted a children’s Christmas party on Sunday, December 18th where all children were treated to lunch, entertainment by Mr Bamboozle and a wonderful gift from the main man himself – Santa. The party, held this year at The Plough, St Asaph is always enjoyed by old and young alike.

Employees and their families wish to thank the LCEU Directors for their generosity and Vicky for organising the two events..
