QMS Christmas Bash & an Unexpected Proposal!
On Friday 18th December 2015, QMS held their annual Christmas bash at The Beachlands Hotel in Weston Super Mare.
The party was a great success and all staff and partners thoroughly enjoyed the evening which commenced with a round of heads ’n’ tails to raise money for The Lighthouse Club Construction Industry Charity with a £100 cash prize for the champion. IMS Manager, Brendon Hext, won the game and graciously donated his winnings to the charity pot which totalled £498.00 at the end of the night.
Between courses a quiz was held which was well received and tested not only the general knowledge of those around the tables but also their knowledge of our retiring Managing Director, Ralph Clark, as one of the rounds was specific to his 52 successful years within the road marking industry.
Our Internal Line Marking Chargehand, Shaun Robson, was awarded Employee of the Year and received a trophy with weekend away for 2 at the luxury 4 star Norton Park Hotel in Hampshire, and our Internal Line Marking Operative Mark Powell received a Special Recognition Award for his contribution to the business over the past 12 months before dropping down on one knee and popping the question to his long term girlfriend, Tracey to rapturous applause from his colleagues and friends!
After dinner, QMS’ Houdini, Bruce Clark, wowed our guests with his card tricks whilst everyone danced until the early hours to music from every era.
The venue, food and hospitality were exceptional and set the scene for a memorable Christmas party. We would like to issue a big thank you to the Beachlands Hotel for looking after us so well and to all of our staff for making 2015 such a success.
We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you again in the New Year.
