Wychwood Park celebrates a decade of dedication

De Vere Venues Wychwood Park celebrated 10 years as a conferencing, training and events venue for Staffordshire and Cheshire, with a dedicated ribbon cutting ceremony.

The ribbon cutting ceremony was held outside the main Atrium of the venue and saw customers, suppliers, supporters and senior members of staff raise a toast to the decade of dedication.

European Touring Professional, Simon Wakefield and Rachel Shenton, former Hollyoaks actress and Celebrity Champion of the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice Trust, (Wychwood Park’s nominated Charity of the Year), attended as special guests to cut the ribbon.

The event was also in celebration of their three longest standing members of staff who have shown passion and dedication to Wychwood Park for the last 10 years. Graham Howe, Maintenance Manager, Sharon Bailey Steam Bake and Grill Supervisor, and John Rhodes, Night-Shift Manager were presented with a celebratory certificate and bottle of champagne.

The Weston-based venue also welcomed new General Manager, Nathan Smith-Hilliard who is to oversee and help drive forward Wychwood’s growth.

Nathan expects continued development and interest in Wychwood Park for weddings and social events.

The event concluded with champagne and a light lunch for all those that attended.
