The history of Morris, Marshall and Poole and Norman Lloyd goes back quite a way.
Last month we announced the merger of our two well-established businesses and this photograph, unearthed at one of our offices recently, shows two key members of both businesses at a livestock sale in aid of the Red Cross held at Welshpool going back to the 1940s.
The sale had been organised by the Montgomeryshire branch of the National Farmers Union in aid of the Red Cross and it was Morris, Marshall and Poole and Norman Lloyd who understood proceedings.
Pictured at the sale is the then Mayor of Welshpool, Cllr F.W. Hughes, with Mr Norman Lloyd and Mr Stanley Morris, who was the son of the founder of MMP, Mr E.H. Morris.
Can you see any old farming family members in the photo?
Today, MMP incorporating Norman Lloyd operates Welshpool Livestock Sales at Buttington Cross, one of the UK’s and Europe’s largest livestock marts.
