The insolvency firm acting on behalf of Sudbury-based Chimneys Hospitality Limited, already the subject of a winding-up petition, confirmed one of the directors of the catering company died on February 20.

The director has not been named.

Business rescue and insolvency specialists McTear Williams & Wood, which has been asked to advise the company, said Chimneys will be unable to continue trading.

The insolvency firm said it will assist in closing down the business and has called a meeting of creditors on March 18, at which the company will be placed into liquidation.

Chimneys provides outside catering services to weddings and private functions and had been facing pressure from its creditors, which culminated in a winding-up petition being served.

David Wood, of McTear Williams & Wood, said: “I am contacting all those who have pre-paid to see if we can put them in touch with other caterers who may be able to step in.

“The directors of Chimneys regret the position the company is in and are working with the team at McTear Williams & Wood to ease the situation for their customers.”

Anyone who is concerned or who had a booking with Chimneys but has not heard from McTear Williams & Wood, is asked to email David Wood at davidwood@mw-w.com.
