Marketing firm celebrates landmark birthday

Staff at marketing agency Aylesworth Fleming in Kibworth celebrated the company’s 30th anniversary with a 1980s-themed party.

The firm is one of the UK’s biggest independent marketing agencies and was founded in Bournemouth in 1985.

Its Midlands office, at Kibworth Business Park, opened in late 2012. Staff from the Kibworth office celebrated the company’s birthday earlier this month with a party which included 80s music and a quiz on the decade.

The Swan pub, which recently re-opened in High Street, Kibworth, hosted the party and the marketing firm was the first to use its newly-revamped function room.

The agency specialises in residential property marketing with firms such as Bellway Homes, Davidsons and Hazelton Homes on its books. It employs over 100 people nationwide, including 11 at Kibworth.

David Watts, managing director of the Kibworth office, said: “While we were celebrating the 30th anniversary, we were also marking two years in business in Kibworth and in that short time our agency has gone from strength to strength.”
