Celebrating 30 Years
On Friday 31st July, we held a staff celebration to mark a significant milestone - our 30th Anniversary. Both staff and their family members were entertained by a host of fun and games, held at our premises Endeavour House. And what better time to plan an outdoor celebration than the middle of the English summer! Imagine how surprised we were then, when four solid days of torrential English Riviera rain fell Monday to Thursday that week, but on Friday the sun came out and we had a scorcher!
We enjoyed a fabulous afternoon and everyone entered into the spirit of things – whether riding the Bucking Bronco, jousting on inflatable platforms, savouring the barbecue food or simply having their faces painted! An assortment of prizes was available at the raffle and £100 was successfully raised for Cancer Research UK, which is a great achievement. Other competition winners of the day received gift vouchers of their choice.
The fun-filled afternoon was very much enjoyed by all, and the pictures on this page capture some of the excitement that was encountered by our staff.
Across the globe celebrations were also held by our teams at Lorient Pacific and Lorient North America.
Sincere thanks to all our friends; customers and suppliers alike for their kind wishes for our celebration - below are some of them we received.
“Today is a special day for the Lorient Group, celebrating the 30th anniversary of incorporation. We wish you, your colleagues and your company all the best in celebrating your anniversary today, but most important we wish you further success in your markets and prosperous years to come …”

“Many Congratulations and good wishes for the future to you and your wonderful team of people on this your 30th Anniversary year! May you continue to prosper during your many years ahead.”
“I'd like to add the congratulations of Royde & Tucker to the wealth of such that have undoubtedly flooded in from the rest of the industry. …… Admittedly you've got a fair few years to go to catch up with us in longevity terms, but the early signs are good so here's to plenty more years of clean fighting at the head of the field. Very best of regards to you and the team who'll take you into the next thirty years.”
“Thanks Maria around 18.30 tonight I will raise my glass to your success and that of Lorient.”
