IMG_2909On Saturday 20th August 2016, we celebrated the Redwood Financial 2nd Birthday! This provided the perfect opportunity for us to thank everyone who has made the last 2 years the most enjoyable imaginable. After the success and lovely feedback we received after the 2015 event, Old Alresford Place, was once again chosen as the venue.

After the whole team weather watching for the last week or so, the outlook didn’t look good and a Plan B was swiftly drawn up. Waking up on Saturday morning the bleak forecast seemed to be becoming a reality with several very heavy showers. Thankfully we were blessed as the afternoon passed by with just a couple of spots of rain!

DSC00202In a slight change from the previous year, we were lucky to have MusicFusion a locally based charity who inspire young people who may be experiencing difficult times in life, to express themselves through music come and perform. Syanne who at just 12 years old and with little experience singing to large audiences, blew our guests away and moved some to tears with some brilliant soulful singing. Definitely one for the future!

It was great fun to see all of our clients meeting each other, laughing together and playing a few friendly games. Swingball, Connect4 and Giant Jenga. A few members of the Redwood team embarrassed themselves with how bad their croquet skills were! Although they will say they were being polite and letting our guests win!

I think I speak for everyone in saying the food both at the BBQ and the afternoon tea which followed was excellent and the decision to use caterers paid off as I don’t think the food would have been so delicious had Steve been in charge of the BBQ!

The whole day was such great fun! We would like to thank all of the staff at Old Alresford Place for their tireless effort throughout the day and for MusicFusion for providing such great quality entertainment! And of course, thank you to our wonderful clients for attending, preparations are already underway for our 3rd birthday next year! We look forward to seeing you all there!
