A Great Team
For the second year, we held our Family Fun Day at the stunning Petworth Park. Last year’s event obviously went down well, as this year we welcomed double the number of guests! We hosted over 200 members of the Thakeham team, their families and friends and over 500 “friends of Thakeham” – suppliers, consultants, contractors and associates.
Our Family Fun Day popularity speaks volumes about the great team we have at Thakeham – it’s this team and the wider team of the people we work alongside, that has enabled us to grow rapidly over the past 18 months, as well as set the foundations for a very bright future. This growth and the relationships we have with each and every company we deal with, is something we can all be very proud of.
Fun & Laughter at Petworth Park
The Family Fun Day on Saturday 18th July, delivered perfect weather and a lot of fun and laughter in a beautiful location. We could not ask for more. Kaleidoscope Traditional Jazz Band, complete in whites, stripes and boaters, kept up a lively background of great music. Harris’s Traditional Fun Fair provided colourful, fairground rides which were enjoyed by all ages! Our face painters were kept busy, again it would seem that all ages enjoyed the artistic talents of Clare Gaster and her colleague Amy.
A BBQ, Hog Roast & Ice Creams!
The warm weather kept the ice cream van very busy, our accounts team catered for sweet tooth’s selling bags of sweets to raise funds for Action Medical Research for Children & Hannah’s Holiday Home Appeal. An impressive BBQ by Rawlings Butchers and a Thakeham hog roast kept the guests’ hunger at bay with a Pimms tent serving the summer favourite and a variety of other beverages, ensured everyone was adequately watered throughout the day! The Mobile Bar Company enjoyed the event so much last year they couldn’t wait to joins us again!
A Perfect Day
And if that wasn’t enough Champion Caterers were serving delicious salads to accompany the meat fest! And when it all got a bit much bouncing on the Bouncy Castles, the chill-out tent with large bean bags was the perfect place to kick back, relax and take it all in. The marquees provided by Paul Simon Marquees were a perfect addition to such a special location.
It was a perfect day to say thank you to those who help Thakeham be the best we can be. We are looking forward to a very busy end to 2015 and can’t wait to showcase what we have in store for 2016!
