Andy Lomax from Lomax Roofing Ltd found one of the specially printed Redland tiles that had been hidden in one of the Rosemary pallets. This entitled him and the merchant who supplied the pallet, Andrew Bentley from Earnest Bentley, to two crates of London Pride beer each which were delivered by their Redland Area Account Manager, Steve Webb.
They were then both entered into a separate prize draw along with the other successful tile finders for the chance to win a weekend away in London or the £1000 cash prize equivalent.
When Andy Lomax received the news he had won he told Steve Webb: “I've worked with Redland products for years, it is a great company and I'm over the moon to have won. I'm going to opt for the cash prize and put it towards my next holiday."
Keith Teasdale, Store Manager at Ernest Bentley, was equally happy with their win, saying: "Redland is an excellent company and we’ve had a great relationship over the years. We're really pleased to have won the Rosemary 175 competition and we'll be dividing the money between all of us."
Redland celebrated the 175th birthday of its Great British Rosemary Clay Classic tile alongside the launch of the latest tile in the Rosemary range, the Rosemary Clay Craftsman and created the competition to engage with its customers.
The competition coincided with the 175th anniversary of the first-ever Rosemary tile being sold on the UK market. Since that day Rosemary clay tiles have become inextricably-linked with Britain’s vernacular architectural style.
