Who has the balls to paint

Denne Joinery recently held an internal challenge between the factory and the office.

The day was well attended with just under half of the workforce participating and resulted in a draw and numerous brightly coloured bruises!  A big thank you goes to Rhys Stickings for organising the day and we are looking forward to a repeat match (but maybe not the bruises!).

Christmas Party 2008

The annual Christmas Dinner was held for all staff members at Cafe Belge in Canterbury.

With excellent food and a few memorable speeches from new staff and the Management Team (including the recollection of an Irish Builder’s Tale sung in Irish by one of our apprentices), a good time was had by all. After the meal was over, the party moved into the town for a few seasonal drinks. The next meal is now in the planning and it is hoped that it will be even better than last year.
