Favourite Christmas song?
Have to be a toss-up between Slade and the Pogues, but “Fairy-tale of New York” wins as it’s mandatory to have a drink in your hand whilst belting it out!

Who would your Father Christmas be?
Liam Gallagher, probably discuss religion, politics and world peace for all of 30 seconds and then get the party started. I’d probably have half a chance at trivial pursuits as well – I would hope!

Walking In A Kerfoot Wonderland

Well, it’s that time of year again! It comes but once a year. The nights are drawing in; the high-street stores are full of busy shoppers and children everywhere are writing their wish lists to the jolly man in red.

Who would your Father Christmas be?
There’s only one Father Christmas! Just in case he reads the Kerfoot Blog I don’t want him to think I don’t believe and take me off his list.

The end of my first month. Steve Savage Group Operations Director.

At the end of my first month as part of the Kerfoot team it seems like a good time to post my first Blog and let you all know what I’ve been using my time doing. I’ve been immediately struck by the passion people have for our oil products, the dedication and pride in making sure we always put our customers first and the attitude of people to work as one team and go the extra mile.

A masterpiece in development

2015 saw an exciting development in The Kerfoot Group History books with the progression and development of Project Van Gogh taking place in Goole, East Yorkshire.
With Sunflower oil demand rising, greater supply was needed and a £1.6million pound investment was made to further storage facilities available within Goole in order to meet those rising demands.
Fondly named Project Van Gogh due to the artist’s famous works involving sun flowers, the development has provided

Race day gallops to success

Despite the forecasts, the sun shone down on the 5th September in North Yorkshire, when The Kerfoot Group hosted their 2015 Race Day at Thirsk Racecourse courtesy of Chief Executive Jennifer Kerfoot.
Dapper hats, smart outfits and few slightly more bronzed folk filled The Kerfoot Marque and that’s just in reference to the men!
Teams from both Goole and Northallerton descended on the racecourse, where of course oil was at the forefront with each table named after an oil source
