LAWSON MARDON FIBRENYLE
Lawson Mardon Fibrenyle is a major European manufacturer of plastic bottles. Located on the Ellough Airfield and at Gosford
Road in the centre of Beceles, the company makes millions of bottles a week. The bottles are used to package many of the
products which you buy on your trip to the supermarket: bottles for shampoo, conditioner, skin-care products, disinfectants,
washing-up liquid, polishes, cooking oil, squash, mineral water, milk powder

the list is endless.

The original company was formed in 1946 at the very inception of plastic bottle blowmoulding. Right from the very beginning
the company developed an excellent reputation for making innovative containers, by utilising skills in materials blending and
processing. Two decades of rapid growth followed as more products moved into plastic containers, and in 1964 the company
relocated from London to the present Gosford Road site.

Growth continued and a special expertise in decorating bottles by silk-screen printing emerged. By 1974, space for expansion
in Becclcs had bccn taken up and Fibrenyle opened the Ellough factory and moved its I-lead Offices up to the Industrial Estate.
Growth and expansion at Ellough continued within the Lawson Mardon Group, whose Headquarters are in Toronto. Canada.
Many of the products manufactured at Beecles are exported to Europe and beyond, and have won a number of the coveted
Worldstar~ awards presented for packaging excellence, gaining a reputation known and valued throughout the packaging
world.

SIR JOHN LEMAN HIGH SCHOOL

The school was founded in 1632 by Sir John Leman, then Lord Mayor of London and Prime Warden of the Fishmongers’
Company. As a Free School, 50 boys from Beccles, Ringsfield and Gillingham were educated there each year in its Fine original
building in Ballygate. This is now the Beceles Town Museum. [see Ballygate]

1933 
 
 
 
 
 
Over the sixty years 1910-1970 the school roll rose from 80 to nearly 500 pupils. It became the Sir John Leman Grammar School
and counted among its finest scholars Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin, Nobel Prize winner for Chemistry in 1964.
In  1971 thc school became a comprehensive upper school serving a large area of the Waveney Valley, South Norfolk and
beyond. Now the school has grown in size to accommodate over 1300 students in the 13-18 age range. Over 300 are in the Sixth
Form. New buildings have been added, a thriving Sports Centre developed, and the school is the centre for adult education in
the community. However, the desire to provide quality education has been fiercely maintained and is symbolised by the school
motto ‘Achievement for All’.
