Company founder: Tony Hewitt


The Parkwood Group operates through two holding companies, Parkwood Leisure Holdings Limited and Alston Investments Limited. Both of these companies are wholly owned by the Hewitt family. Parkwood’s founding director, Tony Hewitt, sadly died on 31st December 2017 but the ownership of these two holding companies remains within his immediate family.

Parkwood Leisure Holdings Limited owns Parkwood Holdings Limited (the former holding company) which in turn owns Parkwood Leisure, Parkwood Creative and Parkwood Project Management.

Alston Investments Limited (registered in England and Wales No: 08837616) owns Glendale, Glendale Golf, Glendale Horticulture, Parkwood Consultancy Services and Alston Properties.

The two Groups work closely together under the Parkwood umbrella, with many of the internal support functions being shared across the two groups.

Prior to 2014, the Group was wholly owned by Parkwood Holdings plc, a company which was listed on the London Stock Exchange.
