At the end of 2015, Country Estates Group celebrated its 50th anniversary. The business, which includes Denton & Gibson and Darcliffe Homes, has grown from a business with five employees and a share capital of £2,000, to a company with net assets in excess of £20 million!
To celebrate this milestone, the Directors of the company hosted a gala dinner for staff and business associates past and present. The event was held at the Hilton Hotel, Reading just before Christmas and was to thank the staff for all their work over the years and to celebrate the company’s achievements.
The evening was an enormous success with 120 people in attendance. Guests were served a delicious three course meal and were treated to cabaret and dancing from the superb three-piece band Triple Cream. Magicians Richard Pinner and Mark Williams entertained and amazed the guests and MC Barry Williams had everyone in stitches.
Joint Managing Director Gary Smith comments, “Having been with Country Estates from the start, it was fantastic to attend an event where we could truly celebrate the many projects, people and partners that have helped to shape and grow the business over the last 50 years. It was a fitting end to a successful year and a great way to look ahead to the next 50 years!”
