Lightfoot Windows Crouch Hill.

No new parts on the this post, just some sad news.

Lightfoot Window Fittings, of Crouch Hill, London, is with us no more!
They finally closed their doors at the end of July, after being there as long as I can remember.

We dealt with Lightfoot for many years, swapping parts, supplying them with off the shelf items and bespoke parts and generally having a good laugh! : )
Great guys to deal with, who served countless people who rolled up to their door at the side, where they ran a Trade Counter, supplying Crittall Windows and parts, as well as many other parts for steel and aluminium windows.

There aren't many of us left now - we have lost Brent Alumin, Anglia Fixings (Window Fittings Division) Edwards Window Accessories, of Sheffield and a few others trading in similar items.
Perhaps with the rise in online trading, some of the older established companies, who specialise in face to face trading, struggle to keep up.

A lot of tradesmen, throughout London, used to head to their trade counter - pick up the parts they needed and went back to site to sort the job out.

They will be sadly missed.
