December brought in a flurry of decorations and a blur of Christmas jumpers as the team welcomed Christmas and all the cracking stuff it had to offer …

and this December brought not just one Christmas party, but two! Along with Secret Santa, a Christmas buffet and some cheeky advent calendars!

The first Christmas Party was at South Sands Hotel with a lovely three course meal to which was followed by the amazing Lipinski Brothers who got the tables up and dancing the night away. Everyone was in good spirits and loved the energy of the night.

Then just a week later, ‘Bad Santa’ took to the stage at The Royal Hotel – where the atmosphere was hilarious as characters from his ‘crew’ kept the whole crowd entertained throughout the whole evening. The night ended with live music from the awesome Missing Cat Trio who kept everyone partying til the clock struck midnight.

Once the team had finally gotten over the ‘two weeks in a trot’ partying – Secret Santa was held alongside a beautiful buffet from Parkside Cafe.
The gifts were dished out by our very own, jump-suited up, Christmas-tree-hat wearing, elf boy 

Kate received guinea-pig orientated prezzies, Samantha a lovely bottle of red and Martin some swit-swoo, stream-line, saftey cycling glasses for his ride in to work.

And of course the dogs were good again this year … with Pippa joining the team in fully gearing up in her Christmas ‘fits – Woody just managed to muster enough Christmas spirit to put on a tie. 


And of course Christmas is a continuous conveyor of treats and titbits – so when Selina brought in home made Bailey’s cupcakes, the team only groaned ever so slightly at the sight of more goodies, but didn’t hesitate in digging in! 

So what a wonderful way to end the year with well deserved celebrations and laughs and great times.

As always, thank you to our hard working team, our customers, friends and family in making the year a success. 

Bring on 2024!
