We finally did it. After many requests we held a barbecue at the Lucky 6 Marketing office in Preston. By all accounts, it was a huge success.
We have no delusions that this success is owed totally to the excellent people that attended the event.
The Last Barbecue of the Year
Planned for mid September the barbecue was timed to take place as most people headed back to work following the summer holidays. We took a gamble with the time of year and for the week running up to the event we had a 50% chance of rain.
The gamble paid off and it just so happened the week of the barbecue became the hottest on record in the past 50 years. In fact, it was hotter than many days throughout summer!
We estimate 40 people or so attended the barbecue. From clients to networking friends and business associates, there was a nice mix. There was even a team from Rock FM Cash for Kids. It was all these people together in one place that made it such a fun day.
We could not have put on this event without the people below that contributed their time, kindness and helped us pull off the best barbecue this side of Preston Docks.
T.R Snape & Sons Family Butchers – For doing us a great deal on the meat for the barbecue and being really helpful.
Matthew Langton – The gazebo used to cover the food table was lent to us by Matthew.
Richard from Clifton Fields – The barbecue was kindly donated by our Landlord and Owner of the Clifton Field Estate where we are based. A big thank you to Richard for his kindness, help and active support of us putting on such an event.
Atelier Creative & Zebra Colour – The night before the barbecue Gareth from Zebra Colour contacted us regarding a photographer for the event. He introduced us to Atelier Creative who showed up with less than 12 hours notice, took some absolutely fantastic photos and sent them over to us the very next day! Thank you to you both.
Everyone that attended – Thank you to every single person that attended our very first event on this scale. You made it a day to remember. When should we host the next?
