A&P Falmouth Ltd held its annual pensioners Christmas dinner on Friday evening for retired workers of Falmouth Docks.
Nearly 130 retirees were waited on by directors, senior managers and staff of A&P Falmouth, and served a traditional two course Christmas meal of Roast Turkey and Christmas Pudding, all washed down with some ìChristmas cheerî at Falmouth School.
Paul Kneebone, HR Manager of A&P Falmouth, said: ìOnce again it was a good evening and a chance catch up with old friends and colleagues, it is certainly something that the Pensioners and company management alike look forward toî.
Peter Child, Managing Director, gave his annual report, reflecting on tough year for the company he thanked his management team and the workforce for their continued commitment through a difficult period. The news that the company had recruited a small number of apprentices was welcomed news. The Pensioners’ return of thanks was given by retired Engineering Manager Mr Stuart Martin, before a quiet toast to absent friends and former colleagues unfortunately no longer with us. The kitchen staff at Falmouth School were presented with bottles of wine and thanked for the excellent meal before the raffle of prizes generously donated by suppliers to A&P rounded off the evening.
