News

It is with great sadness we announce the death today 11th July 2020,
of one our most inspirational members of staff David Hamlin.

David was fundamental in our earliest day in establishing the Company.

David joined in 2007 and was the cornerstone of the warehouse and driving logistics operation.

He will be missed by all at The Cook & The Butler and all those
who had the opportunity to meet David in the events industry.

David taught so very much and his loyalty and sense of humour will never be replaced.
