Party Time

Fun was had by all during the Weddel Swift Christmas party, this year hosted at Aintree Race course the home of the Grand National. The theme of the night was ‘Midnight in Monte Carlo’, so dinner suits and elegant dresses were the order of the day.

A free bar, good food and excellent entertainment all contributed to a wonderful night and in celebration of the party we decided to get a picture of the whole team in full party spirit.

During the heady Spring of 1990, while the rest of the country was dancing to New Kids on the Block and rapping with John Barnes and New Order, Weddel Swift trader Iain Scott and the rest of the team at the Preston Depot (now merged with Rochdale) took it upon themselves to help a local charity for handicapped children.

It was the annual River Ribble Raft Race on the spring bank holiday where lots of homemade rafts raced from Ribchester to the mouth of the Ribble – which was some  14 Miles. The boys spent  6 weeks building the raft from old meat pallets and plastic drums and were very proud of the finished article. On the day they were able to use the Swift wagon for transport to the start.

Unfortunately they only managed to get about 500 metres down the river before the drums came away from the pallets and unfortunately the raft sank, soaking wet; but with the help of New Zealand Lamb we managed to raise a sum of £314 for the charity.

Mark Murphy, logistics manager at Weddel Swift Liverpool has being raising money for the Marie Curie Centre in Liverpool by making crisps, chocolates and soft drinks available for staff in the office.

Mark also uses some of the cash to help fund a local Sunday league side Garston F.C, currently riding high in the Liverpool Sunday League premier division.

The latest donation has just been acknowledged by Marie Curie and the amount raised in the first year so far has been £550. Not a bad effort from the 22 staff working at our Liverpool office. Thanks to all involved and may their diets remain on hold for a little longer!

Weddel Swift’s very own ovine guru Terry Barham has made the local news this week landing a hole in one during a round at Hurlson Hall Golf Club on December the 10th. Terry has been a member of the Golf Club since 1997 and this was his first hole in one.

Delighted, he said he’d “blobbed the first two holes and was falling behind my arch rival Tom Houghton, the ace brought me back into contention and enabled me to overhaul him on the 18th green”

Terry now hopes to continue this rich vein of form into the Weddel Swift Company Golf day scheduled for later this year.
