Castle Annual Charity Bowling 2017

November saw SWC take part in the Castle Recruitment annual charity ten pin bowling challenge competition.

Despite a very high team score (and our very competitive natures), we didn’t win the competition, but were all reminded that it was the taking part to raise funds for a very good cause that truly counted! Over £400 was raised on the night for Saint Catherines’s Hospice, our nominated Company charity.

L-R representing ‘Team SWC’ were Ian Monkman (Production), Luke Jenkinson (trade Counter), Jon Hodgson (Sales Office), Dave Carter (Production), Susan Richings (MD), Mick Stocks (Driver) & Mike Moore (IT)….What a motley crew eh?!

As you can see, I’ve been very naughty and am being punished for my crime. I’m being escorted by the Police to a cell in the old Scarborough Jail on Thursday 16th November in support of Saint Catherine’s Hospice who need our help to raise much needed funds to support their excellent work. There are various ways in which you can donate money to either keep me in Jail or Bail me out! The first two ways below are for you to use beforehand and on the day. Please feel free to share with your contacts & HUGE THANKS in anticipation of your support!

    Smooth Anthracite Grey Foil (both sides) in System 10…

    **Available to order now**

    Purchasing new Windows and Doors is no longer a distress purchase to replace ‘old’ with ‘new’. These items are a desirable feature that can add character and value to a property as well as provide improved lifestyle benefits.

    Over the last few years two of the biggest trends in the fenestration industry have been the resurgence of aluminium products and the popularity of the colour grey over white.

    Somewhere between black and white, the colour Grey used to be referred to as dull and lifeless, but now its deemed sexy and bold, which is quite the opposite. Grey is certainly becoming the new white and for an alternative to an aluminium window, why not think about our new ‘smooth finish foil’ in anthracite grey (RAL 7016) both sides. Smooth grey is available to order now in our System 10 chamfered suite including our increasingly popular flush sash option. They say that if you leave something alone long enough it will come back into fashion and that is certainly true of our System 10 chamfered suite with clean straight lines and flat / chamfered beading this is fast becoming our contemporary option.

    With the additional bonus of being a less expensive option to aluminium, PVCu also out performs the vast majority of aluminium products when it comes to energy efficiency.


    *With the amount of colours to choose from including three greys’ please be sure to select the correct option on the order form.

    Although we are stocking smooth grey the lead-time on this option from Veka is 4 weeks and therefore some larger orders may take up to 5 weeks to complete.

    Please note the following Products are not available with a smooth foil finish :
    Composite Doors slabs
    PVCu Aspect Bi-folds
    Conservatory Roofs & Skypods (unless kolorbonded)
    Vertical Sliders
    Inline PVCu Patio Doors
