Tees Dock 50th Anniversary Celebrations. What was all the fuss?!

As I've previously mentioned, last week marked 50 years since the official opening of Tees Dock in 1963. The company I work for are owners and operators of this Port and thought it would be a great idea to celebrate this milestone. To do this we had a week jam packed with events for current employees, ex employees, stakeholders and local schools. This took months of planning but finally came together. Although this is another boring work post I wanted to show you a few pictures of what this all looked like as I am pretty proud of what we achieved.

When the schools came in we talked about the journey of a tea bag from the source, through the port into your cups!

Then on to the dinners! We held three of these over the week inviting ex employees and employees that had over 20 years service at Tees Dock. Can you imagine working somewhere for over 20 years?!

For our stakeholder event we wanted to cut a cake to celebrate the anniversary so we commissioned Middlesbrough college to bake us one. It was HUGE!

They also baked us 800 cakes for our family fun day! So yummy!

This cake was baked by Betty's in Harrogate to be given away in the raffle. The person who won this let us share it between our colleagues and I can tell you it was sooo lush!

This was such a stressful event but I think in the end it paid off. Everyone enjoyed themselves and only has good things to say about the event.

What do you think of the event? Did we do a good job? Would you have loved to have gone?
