News and Events

The cockle season began on 10 July this year.  We are only permitted to fish for cockles for around 28 days this year, so the season will come to an end at the end of September.

Our cockle boat has had some maintenance work carried out this year, being lifted out of the water to be sanded back and repainted as well as various pieces of equipment being updated or replaced to ensure we minimise any disruptions during the season.

We have also invested in our cockle processing factory this year, with replacements to some equipment on the production line.  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. The event runs in September.  We usually sponsor the cockle eating competition.  For more information, please click here – http://www.oldleighregatta.co.uk.
