Drewitt Group in pictures: A report from the Daily Echo

The Drewitt Group, a family business behind some of the best-known buildings in the area has shared its fascinating collection of pictures.

The Drewitt Group can trace its history to 1877 and spent much of the 20th century working on landmark projects around Bournemouth and Poole.

Current owners Richard and Gillian Drewitt are the fifth generation of their family to run the business, which was one of the best-known builders in the area until 1984.

The company’s story started in 1877, when Charles Henry Drewitt started his own painting and decorating business in New Malden, Surrey.

His son James set up his own business in New Malden in 1898 and came to Bournemouth in 1916, when he was invalided out of the army.
