Ashwoods Electric Motors annual staff party took place on Saturday 21st July, with this year’s event having the added excitement of being our first in Innovation Valley! This opportunity for a party could not be wasted!

From a magician to a DJ, BBQ and bouncy castles for children (and bigger children), it is safe to say our staff party had a little bit of everything.

Thankfully, rain did not stop play, and our staff and friends and family enjoyed a glorious afternoon of sunshine in our new home in the Devon countryside. With a backdrop of great music, mind-twisting magic tricks and a tasty BBQ it was a perfect fun day, which hit its peak for many with a surprise arrival of an ice cream van!

The ice cream van, before the masses descended upon it!

The gargantuan cake (leftovers still in the staff room!) was cut after speeches from Chris Bew (Manufacturing/Operations Director) and Lloyd Ash (Managing Director). It was a very fitting moment, as it is our Directors that have made the move into Innovation Valley possible.

As the afternoon drew to a close, a group of dedicated staff members endeavoured to continue the party long into the night on pastures new – though it must be said, some were more successful at doing this than others!

A big ‘thank you’ to our Directors for making this happen, as well as all the staff involved with organisation, set up, and tidy up that went into a great day.
