An ALPHR Christmas!December 20, 2012
This year has, yet again, been an incredibly busy but extremely successful one for the team down at ALPHR Technology and, as December edges to a close, it was once more time for the much loved and anticipated annual Christmas party! This year the ALPHR team prepared for a Wild West themed event – swapping talk of robotics, automation and vision testing for rodeos, Bucking Broncos and an interesting selection of cowboy hats…
An evening of Christmas festivities…
Last Saturday, the 15th of December, marked ALPHR’s Christmas celebrations and granted the team who have worked so hard over the past year, a much deserved chance to engage in some celebrations and have some fun. The team, accompanied by various friends and family members, headed down to Letchworth Hall Hotel in Hertfordshire and embarked on a Wild West night, complete with a rodeo challenge!
The evening included a meal of traditional Christmas grub and all the festive trimmings, along with a (particularly large) assortment of wine, beer and alcoholic tipples! And, as the night progressed, the allure of the dance floor grew on various members of staff, resulting in a fair amount of dancing and some outwardly displayed Christmas spirit!
One of the highlights of the night was the Bucking Bronco and many members of the ALPHR team dared to brave the rodeo – with some even putting in some particularly good times! David Crick managed an incredibly impressive 48 seconds, while Julie completed a very respectable 36. Billy, on the other hand, did not manage to last as long, flying off the Bronco after only 8 seconds!
The event was attended by both of ALPHR’s directors, including Ian, who even dressed for the occasion with a (rather questionable) white cowboy hat! A pink hat also surfaced throughout the evening, which Ian was particularly keen to try on too, resulting in an unusual Woody impression – complete with an ‘Andy’ ownership logo emblazoned on his foot!
Overall, a fantastic night was had by everyone in attendance and, although heads may have hurt and memories been slightly blurred in the morning, it was a brilliant end to 2012! Managing Director, Kalli Basra, summed it up well by saying: “After a long, hard and successful year, it was great to see everyone let their hair down and enjoy themselves.”
ALPHR Technology would also like to take this time to thank everyone who has been so instrumental to a very successful year – including our valued clients, suppliers and, of course, our dedicated team. We are already planning how to make 2013 even better and have a number of exciting plans and developments ready for the year ahead! So here’s to a merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year – we’ll see you all in 2013!This entry was posted in News.
