Helen Celebrates Claygate's Growth

Helen Grant MP, the Member of Parliament for Maidstone and the Weald, was invited to open a new warehouse for bathroom product wholesaler, Claygate Distribution, in her constituency on Friday.


At a packed event in Marden, at the Pattenden Lane Industrial Estate, Helen cut the ribbon to mark the continuing growth of the business in the presence of company staff and local businesses and residents.

Helen said: "Claygate is important employer in my local village of Marden and I was honoured to be invited to open their new warehouse by Andrew and Mel Streek, who I know support our community in a multitude of ways. Today's opening is a sign of their success and long may it continue".
