THE CPL ANNUAL AWARDS NIGHT March 23rd, 2012
For the past few years CPL have awarded their employees for all their hard work in the form of a Christmas party. Whilst it’s true that most organisations nowadays throw a Christmas party for the staff, ours is a little different with stilt walkers and fire eaters to name but a few things.
The 2011 Christmas party was held in Thornton Hall, a beautiful four star hotel and spa in the country. The room was striking, the outfits stunning and the alcohol flowing. After a welcoming speech by Daniel Davies, the CEO, and a three course dinner came the awards.
This year was special in that there were multiple winners in several categories – obviously we have an abundance of talented people working for us!
So, who were are lucky winners?
