Billingtons Sponsor Blog 2019


Multi Award winning local Deli, Billington’s of Lenzie, have stepped up to the plate again this year to bolster support of the local community gala day, Lenzie GalaFest, by sponsoring the event and returning with our favourite Lenzie Gin. 

Known and loved locally for homemade, handmade, artisan and locally sourced produce Mark and Sue Billington, along with their friendly team, are avid supporters of local community groups and events. It is this dedication to the community that inspired them to create their unique artisan gin, Lenzie Gin, inspired by botanicals that grow locally on Lenzie Moss. A favourite fixture from last year we are delighted that they will be returning this year to mix things up and delight us with even more surprises. 

Billington’s themselves take pride in creating a warm, cosy and relaxed atmosphere for residents to enjoy fine wines and food and have firmly stamped their mark on the community by constantly being a great neighbour, community ambassador and supporter by creating exciting events to keep the local foodie experts of Lenzie coming back for more. 

It is evident that the passion for their business and community will no doubt help to cultivate a wonderful atmosphere at this year’s Lenzie GalaFest 40th celebrations. With two marquees this year in our new field layout you will find Mark and Sue tantalising the taste buds of many gala visitors this year and make sure that you pop along to say hello to them. 

Lynne Jhangeer, Sponsorship Team Leader, had this to say: 

“We loved having Billington’s return as one of our exciting vendors at last year’s Lenzie GalaFest. To have them returning this year is even more exciting and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us. Billington’s presence there is so much more than just to allow the community to have a great day out but it also symbolises their commitment to the event itself and we could not be more grateful to Mark, Sue and their team for supporting us in this way”. 

Established in 2012 by owners Mark and Sue, Billington’s of Lenzie sell a large range of wonderful homemade and personally sourced artisan, dairy & gluten free products. From breads to chocolate, ice cream, cakes and desserts, organic fruit and vegetables to meats, cheese, olives, fresh pasta, oils, vinegars, sauces, and a fine selection of wines, beers and spirits. 

Mark Billington, Company Director at Billington’s said: We are delighted to support the Gala again this year, and have Lenzie Gin among others available for tasting. It’s always a great event and wonderful to see the whole community have fun.
