Christmas Spirit Extends Beyond Staff

One Blackpool company is extending Christmas spirit beyond a staff celebration….

Gilberts, Britain’s leading independent air movement manufacturer and engineer, hosted a party for all its employees’ children, at Bounce play centre in Bispham, which caters for children from babies to age 11.

To ensure all the youngsters were suitably accommodated, they had use of the soft play area, a disco, and arranged party games, including ‘Freeze’.

“And it wouldn’t be a Christmas party if they didn’t meet Santa too!” said Gilberts’ managing director Jonathan Haslam, “They all met him in the Christmas grotto, that was even complete with real snow. We are a family company, and try to treat all our staff as members of an extended family- hence the hosting of the party for children.”

The children’s event compliments the company’s celebrations for staff, traditionally held on the last working day before Christmas.
