It is a significant milestone for an organisation to reach its 50th year, something staff past and present gathered to celebrate at Eastwood Park earlier this November.
Since 1969, Eastwood Park has been delivering its specialist engineering and estates & FM training from practical facilities in Gloucestershire. We have already celebrated with industry colleagues at a special drinks reception at Healthcare Estates 2019, so this was a chance for us to celebrate amongst ourselves and say thank you to the staff who have kept Eastwood Park running across the years.
Everyone enjoyed a lunch together in our newly refurbished Terrace Room (with staff favourites on the menu!) before CEO John Thatcher said a few words about the history of the training centre and looked ahead to the future. Not one but three cakes were served, in different colours to represent each of Eastwood Park’s business units, enjoyed alongside a ’50’ themed quiz which invited some fierce competition amongst staff!
After a closing toast from John thanking staff for their support, everyone headed off for the weekend having spent an enjoyable afternoon celebrating with colleagues and friends.
