Christmas Party 2017


The Oakstone International Christmas Party 2017 started at the Oakstone Poole office with a training session lead by CEO Paul Rayner. We were then all treated to a delicious lunch and a competitive bowling afternoon. Finally, we headed to the evening venue, hosted at the prestigious Sandbanks Hotel, Poole. All member’s of the team plus their partners were invited to a delicious 3 course dinner, awards ceremony and night in the hotel courtesy of Oakstone.

‘Despite a few absences due to illness we managed to have another wonderful Christmas Training day and party - thank you to all who contributed to making it a memorable and happy occasion.

Congratulations everyone who worked hard over the last 12 months - sadly it’s not possible to appropriate to give each of you an award but I assure you that all contributions are noted and recognised - for those of you who did receive awards, I congratulate you again for your above and beyond efforts and achievements.

Once again, the food and good - the wine was great and from the level of consumption and enjoyment, I presume what was being passed over the bar was also well received. What I always love to see, which was evident again on Friday, is the whole hearted warmth and obvious comradery that is felt and enjoyed amongst you all. It’s an absolute delight to see the quality of people we have in the team - to see your partners joining in so comfortably with each other and the overall feeling of warmth that is so humbling to see. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did and that you are looking forward to a great festive season and another fabulous year in 2018!’

- Paul Rayner, Oakstone CEO.
