Companies started getting into the Xmas spirit from May by booking tables for our Xmas Lunch....
Table sales increased to over 400 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Nottingham and we were totally sold out by July, which unfortunately meant there were some disappointed people.
Our main sponsor Groundforce Shorco Vp did an excellent company display and TC Harrison JCB sponsored the Champagne draw.
Other sponsors were :- C R Civil, Maybe Hire, Essential Site Skills, Sinbad Plant,Virtus Traffic Solutions, Thomas Bow, Kal Tire, The Guild, Burdens, Trust Utility Management & Heage Road Vehicles.
Chris Balls asked everybody to dig deep in their pockets at the auction prize draw and he certainly succeeded with the auction raising a record breaking £12k, he even auctioned off the 2016 main sponsorship for 5k to VUS Plant! The total money raised was over £31k, another record.
Geoff Harris our MC for the day did an excellent job in keeping order, the raffle ladies worked the floor well, their buckets were overflowing. Most people sat tight to see Roger De Coursey & ‘Nookie the Bear’ complete the day’s entertainment.
