Here at Flixton Sawmill, we believe in supporting our community in several ways. 
 
Our belief in grassroots sport is firm and longstanding and is just one of the ways we help and support the organisation in our area. 
 
Grassroots Sport 
 
Grassroots sport is so important on a number of levels and there is plenty of it in the Flixton, Filey and Scarborough areas. 
 
It helps bring sections of the community together so there is a unity of purpose and a cohesion between those taking part. 
 
Starting sports at an early age (well, any age really) is also crucial for the physical and mental wellbeing of team members and participants. 
 
And any sportsperson has to start somewhere, even as we want England to do well in the 2024 Euros! 
 
Scarborough Athletic Football Club 
 
Scarborough Athletic Football Club has a very loyal following. 
 
To show our support for the Supporters Trust owned club, we have recently donated four benches to the club. We have done this in previous years, too. 
 
SAFC has purchased additional benches at a discount price. 
 
These benches have pride of place in the Fanzone 
 
These are now in place and we are very proud of this project! 
 
As SAFC’s Facebook post said: “Supporting the club and our academy for several years, Flixton Sawmill is the leading supplier of timber products in the area.” 
 
We couldn’t agree more! 
 
We are also sponsors of the SAFC Under-11s away shirt, on which our logo is emblazoned. 
 
It’s a wonderful sight to see our logo on the front of their shirts. 
 
We also have a banner in place showing our blue and yellow logo. Hopefully you can’t miss it. 
Other Sports 
 
Field hockey is a sport which demands skilled usage of hockey sticks and the ball. 
 
Scarborough Hockey Club is one of our local teams, and we have been a shirt sleeve sponsor.

Teams include Men’s, Ladies, Mixed and Juniors. 
 
Oliver’s Mount Racing Circuit 
 
If your favourite sport is on wheels rather than on human legs, then we’ve got the covered too. 
 
As part of our continued dedication to supporting the local community, we have supplied a new podium at the Oliver’s Mount Racing Circuit. 
 
This renowned track attracts the fans during the season and it is an honour to be able to help support it. 
 
 
 
 
Not Just Sports 
 
Yet it isn’t just about the sporting world 
 
 
In the past we’ve helped Scarborough Fire Station with their chimney fire safety scheme. 
 
We also have one of our sponsor boards at the Mud in your Blood track, close to Musham Bank filling station and roundabout. 
 
Mud in your Blood is an off-road motorcycle project which is a co-operative, non-profit family friendly group, set up to help tackle illegal off-road riding in Scarborough. 
 
 
 
While this is purely to promote our business, it also helps get the word out about Flixton Sawmill and by doing so, we can hopefully support even more local causes. 
About Flixton Sawmill 
 
Flixton Sawmill Ltd was established in 1987 as Wykeham Sawmill Ltd. 
 
The company steadily expanded over those first years. 
 
As we had out-grown our original location, we relocated to our current 6-acre site and changed our name to Flixton Sawmill Ltd on 2nd January 2000. 
 
As a family run business with over 45 years in the timber industry, we employ a team of upwards of 20 members of our local community. 
 
Several members of our staff have many years of experience, incredible industry knowledge and have been with the company for many years. 
 
Our stock range is impressive, from timber hardwood to logs and kindling, and from timber buildings to log stores and more.
