It is widely accepted (at least it is by everyone here at the We Plan Group) that the festive period official begins on 1st December – so it was the perfect day for us to throw our 2018 Christmas party!
This year’s black tie event was held at Cardiff City Stadium. The theme for the party was a masquerade ball, and on arrival staff got to choose from an assortment of beautiful masks to wear for the evening.
Once they had picked up their free glass of prosecco our staff were then led through to the beautifully decorated events suite, which looked like a scene from a winter wonderland! They were given the chance to mingle, and exchange comments about how fabulous they all looked, before being invited to their tables.
A feeling of nostalgia filled the room as Heather Small’s hit ‘Proud’ began playing over the Christmas party video.
A celebration of all the amazing work we have done in the past, the video was also a chance to get excited for the future of the We Plan Group. Staff sipped free wine and bottles of beers as they enjoyed the video, erupting in loud cheers once it had ended.
Then, dinner was served!
Staff tucked into a glorious three course meal of epic portions – with extra helpings of pigs in blankets! Whilst the food settled, our chairman, Simon Chorlton took to the stage to present the PRIDE awards with his wife, Sara.
The PRIDE awards are a celebration of those employees who demonstrate our company values throughout the general course of their working day.
An award, and a £50 voucher, was given for the person who showed the most Passion, Respect, Integrity, Dynamism and Excellence.
There was then the overall PRIDE award, which is given to the person from each department who has embodied our company ethos as a whole. These employees won an award and an £100 voucher!
Once the formalities had finished the DJ cranked up the music and the real party began!
Staff flocked to the dancefloor, and there was a constant stream of people taking photos using the selfie mirror.
We also had a special guest this year– a psychic reader. Our staff had the chance to get a reading from her to see if she could tell them what the New Year had in store. However, we don’t need a reading to know that 2019 is going to be an amazing year for the We Plan Group!
The parties we throw are just one of the ways we thank our employees for all the amazing work they do, and we hope everyone enjoyed the night!
From everyone here at the We Plan Group, we wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
