Successful Fruit And Veg Wholesaler Set To Improve Its Premises

One of Wood Street Village’s well known family firms, Cheesman Bros, is about to make improvements to its premises.

Cheesman Bros’ vans have a new livery too.

Since the firm was awarded a new contract to supply Surrey County Council schools with fruit and vegetables last year, it desired that its existing premises off Broadstreet had to be enlarged.

The plans for the proposed new buildings were drawn up by local designer Harold Wells and were approved by Guildford Borough Council planners last year. However, because of a delay in obtaining that planning permission, it was decided to postpone the building works until 2017, in order that it could be undertaken during school holidays to minimise disruption of deliveries to the schools and to Cheesman’s other clients.

The building works will be supervised by Harold Wells, and he has appointed the following local contractors: Demolition works – John Birmingham, Wood Street Village; main contractor  Aalto Construction, Fairlands; electrical contractor – Ross Perry, Fairlands.

Another change at Cheesman Bros is the introduction of delivery vehicles with a new livery and company logo.

It has been a specialised wholesaler of quality fruit, vegetables and salads for over 40 years and a shining example of a successful family business in the local rural economy.

    Great news. Martin, his family and his wonderful staff are a treasure to Guildford and are overlooked at times. If people only knew how generous he is in helping the local community: charities, schools and many more.

    Good luck to him with the build and I love the new van.

    Delighted to see this respected Guildford family providing quality produce to our children and giving business to local contractors.
