Hamworthy Heating held a staff family fun day in recognition of the hard work employees have contributed to the company’s success so far this year.
More than 200 employees and their families attended the firm’s celebrations where they were treated to a programme bursting with team games, prizes and entertainment. A display by Liberty’s Falconry Experience was particularly popular on the day, when birds of prey performed impressive feats in the air before greeting interested spectators one-to-one.
The company, which is celebrating its 100 year old roots this year, also provided a free barbeque, face painting and Punch and Judy shows, while a raffle, lucky dip and ‘fishing for ducks’ stall raised more than £330 for Forest Holme Hospice, Hamworthy Heating’s charity of the year for 2014.
Bob Walsh, technical director at Hamworthy Heating, commented: “In the 1960s, our parent company, Hamworthy Engineering, said: The development of Hamworthy (Company) has depended on people who in their various capacities have served the company loyally and well. It is they who count most . . . whatever we say the company has done, they did. The same is true of Hamworthy Heating today. So we were very keen to recognise the hard work of all our employees in a day of celebration they could share with their nearest and dearest.’
While Hamworthy Heating is at the forefront of providing energy efficient commercial heating and hot water solutions the firm enjoys a solid reputation for its old fashioned values in caring for staff and the community. So far this year the company’s corporate social responsibility programme has included the donation of two brand new boilers to Forest Home Hospice, a team of staff committed to clearing rubbish from local beauty spot Hatch Pond, mentoring students from local schools and a donation of trees to Tucker’s Field community meadow.
