News and Events

The cockle season began on 24 June 2013 this year.  We are only permitted to fish for cockles for around 40 days this year, so the season will come to an end on 4 October.

Our cockle boat has had a major refit this year, with a new main engine and other cockle equipment fitted.  This boat is over twenty years old now, and is still going strong with lots of TLC.

We have also invested heavily in our cockle processing factory this year, with new equipment to improve the production line process.  We expect this investment to further improve the product we supply to our customers.

Old Leigh Regatta

The annual Old Leigh Regatta is a charity event organised in aid of the local scout community located within Leigh-on-sea Old Town. All proceeds raised benefit these groups enabling them to continue their activities for the younger generation. This year the event runs on 21-22 September.  We are sponsoring the cockle eating competition.  For more information, please click here –
