It has been a strange year for us all but when times get tough, we think it’s important to celebrate the wonderful that comes with the weird too. So although 2020 might not have turned out how any of us planned, we still wanted to share our annual highlight reel to help spread a little joy and gratitude for just a few of the things that have made us smile this year…
The 9th annual Penketh Group staff awards
At the beginning of each year, we like to take a little time out to let our hair down, recharge the batteries and celebrate our fabulous teams with an annual staff awards party. This year, we celebrated in style at The Venue in the Royal Liver Building, overlooking the stunning Liverpool waterfront. We laughed, we danced and the award winners were finally revealed over a delicious three-course dinner and expert presenting skills from Mr Chris Penketh himself.
Achieving our The Planet Mark certification
This year, we were proud to announce that we had achieved our official The Planet Mark certification. The Planet Mark is a sustainability certification acknowledging outstanding achievements and encouraging action among an empowered community of like-minded people (and businesses) who all want to make a difference. Sustainability and becoming a more eco-responsible company is something we’re working continually hard to do so this is an exciting accolade for us and something we’re super proud of.
An exciting project at Alderley Park with Bridge Architects
This year we completed a high-profile project alongside Bridge Architects after being selected as their furniture partner for the new Glasshouse project at Bruntwood’s Alderley Park complex. After many months of tireless work from the team, fulfilling a brief which would not only compliment the venue’s natural surroundings but also provide innovative, state-of-the-art facilities, it was fantastic to see the finished product finally revealed.
A new member of the Penketh Group family
Last but not least – congratulations is in order for our lovely Credit Controller, Toni and her husband, Ian who welcomed their beautiful baby boy, Trent into the world in November. We hope you’ll join us in wishing Toni and her family lots of love and happiness for the future. We’re already looking forward to having Toni back in the office after her mat leave!
So, that’s all from us! However you might be celebrating the festive period and the turn of a brand new year, make sure to have fun, keep warm and most importantly of all right now, stay safe. Wishing you a very Happy New Year from everybody here at Penketh Group – see you in 2021!
