For the first time in 2016 the committee decided to have a Derby Xmas Lunch. Initially, Derby County Cricket Club was selected as a venue but due to Branch Secretary, Darren Lowe selling so many tables, we had to upgrade the event into a static purpose built grand marque.
Entertained was provided by the fantastic Aaron James and our MC Geoff Harris kept the evenings events in order. Vice Chairman Ian Hodgkinson presented a cheque for £50,000 to our Welfare Officer, Julija Greaves for all the money raised in the Nottingham and Derby region in 2017.
National Construction Academy (NCA) was the main sponsor, the menus were sponsored by NCA, Hodgkinson Builders, Virtus Traffic Management Solutions and Crown Highways. EKV Design sponsored the wine raffle.
Hodgkinson Builders, Virtus Traffic Management Solutions, Steelphalt, CR Civil Engineering, Midlands Asset Finance, Derbyshire County Cricket Club and TLS supplied an auction prize,
The 2018 Xmas Lunch is planned for Friday 30th November 2018 and due to the popularity of this event, we advise booking early!
