Hero Dave Saves Life!

Beacon Security’s Dave King, gateman at our site for the £20m redevelopment of Sutton & East Surrey Water’s Woodmansterne WTW, last month saved the life of a woman who collapsed at a nearby bus stop as his shift was ending. He administered CPR and revived her until an ambulance arrived. The lady’s husband wrote to Thorne to express his gratitude for Dave’s actions and he is pictured here receiving the congratulations of Chris Thorne, as well as a £50 reward for his outstanding actions.


Shelter Hall – Lower Promenade Wall

As part of the regeneration of Shelter Hall along Brighton beach, C J Thorne & Co have successfully completed the first stage of the contract by renewing the ornate sea wall to protect the new structure from the harsh winters and driving waves.

The £10 million construction of the historic Shelter Hall consists of rebuilding the Victorian Shelter Hall building, constructing the new sea wall and walkway on the lower promenade, but also enlarging the upper prom area on the seafront.
