Thomsons - In the community
Alan Thomson regularly appears on a very popular BBC Radio Essex phone-in show with Mark Punter. Questions encompass the entire audio visual sphere and continue to keep Alan on his toes.... The show is generally on a Friday afternoon between 2 and 3pm.
Chelmsford City Football Club
From the start of the 2008-09 football season, we have supported the non-league club through match-day programme and hoarding advertisements.
Keen fans of the club ourselves, we are confident success is imminent for our local team and are proud to be associated with such a club.
Theatre At Baddow
For many years we have supported Theatre at Baddows' productions with programme advertising.
This excellent small repertory group have produced first class plays at the Great Baddow Parish Hall which have been exceptionally well received and supported by the local community.
Great Baddow Cricket Club
Thomsons actively support Great Baddow Cricket Club and Alan Thomson is a vice president.
We provide financial assistance in the way of youth development projects, fixture list advertising and other donations.
The club, with 3 first teams and excellent youth facilities, are a credit to the Great Baddow community.
Great Baddow Bowls Club
In recent years Thomsons have supported this fantastic little local club with fixture card advertising.
The club has a strong group of players, many of whom are existing Thomsons customers, and a thriving social calendar.
Great Baddow Community Centre
Following the Millenium lottery grant the community centre has been completely redeveloped and refurbished and provides outstanding amenity facilities for the residents of Great Baddow.
During the building project Alan Thomson, with other local businessmen, raised the finance for the clock tower and weather vane.
Thomsons have installed the background music system, PA system and several plasma screens, and maintain the Sky satellite system. The television facilities are particularly appreciated for big sporting events which can be displayed in various areas throughout the club.
Baddow Hall School
Over the years Thomsons have supported the school with adverts in newsletters and prizes for summer fetes.
There is a strong link between the school and Thomsons, as many current employees attended the school.
For many years we have supported the Parents Association with advertising in fete magazines and prizes for tombolas and raffles.
This PSA has done remarkable fundraising to enable the swimming pool to be maintained and kept in use which is a valuable asset not only to the Great Baddow children but also to many local schools.
