PROjEN’s Christmas Celebrations at the Mere Court Hotel
This year saw PROjEN revisit the Mere Court Hotel to host their annual Christmas party. The “Do” organised by Pauline Yeomans was well attended and consisted of pre dinner drinks, 3 course meal and a disco to finish.
John Taylor, PROjEN’s MD presented a number of special “prizes” to staff for their hard work over the past year… Dave Berry received the “Far East” prize – a pair of chopsticks for his work at the Cantley Site, Dave Mairs received recognition for his efforts in the chilli growing competition – proving that size doesn’t matter! Tony Lea was awarded with a clip on tie – a must have item for every tube traveller and Vicky Hough and Katie Abrahams received “Good Wife Guides” in preparation for their 2009 weddings.
Serious praise was afforded to both Sharon Bebbington and Steve Harris who won this quarters PRIDE Award for going “above and beyond”. John also highlighted significant birthdays for some of the PROjEN staff… congratulating them for making it this far – top of the leader board was Mike Wood, aged 65, followed by Steve Nicholls, aged 40 and Martin Hold aged 30!
PROjEN employees also raised £575 from a raffle which benefited the Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice. This charity was selected by Geraint James who was drawn as the raffle winner; Geraint also took up his resident spot as PROjEN photographer and snapped much of the merriment!
John Taylor, PROjEN’s MD commented “This was a sterling night and credit goes to Pauline who organised the evening and the PROjEN employees and their guests who attended. It is always good to get everyone together and say thank you for their efforts over the last 12 months. I am also pleased to see that even though the world is in an economic downturn, there was still generosity amongst the PROjEN employees benefiting the Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice.”
