Hopscotch Awards Dinner 2013
27th March 2013
The Hopscotch Annual Awards Dinner 2013 was held on Friday 8th March at the Holiday Inn, Brighton. Over one hundred Hopscotch Staff members attended this glamorous evening hosted by Group Manager, Claire Martin, to celebrate and reward their achievements over the past year. The evening began with a champagne reception and the eagerly anticipated speeches from each of the Nursery Managers, Operations Director Jo Halling, and Hopscotch Owner Barbara Ford. Everyone enjoyed a delicious three course dinner and wine before the main event of the evening, the awards.
We are especially proud that in 2013 Gemma Middleton, Manager of Portland Road achieved 15 years service, Katie Peerless from Seaford, Shelley Patching and Lara Purdy of Nizells Avenue all achieved 10 years service, in addition to over 34 other members of staff who also achieved long service awards for between 5 and 19 years.
Our Parents Choice Practitioner of the Year Awards went to Caroline Eddy from Preston Park, Lucy Smith from Nizells Avenue, Amanda Boyd-Pain from Portland Road, Maxine Hawkley from Seaford and Annicke Boodram from Peacehaven. These awards were compiled from parent’s customer service nominations and are especially coveted by staff. The winners were announced to cheering and applause from excited colleagues.
Each award winner received a cash bonus, store vouchers and certificates from Barbara.
Everyone agreed it was a fantastic evening and an opportunity for the whole company to come together and celebrate being part of Hopscotch.
