What a wonderful evening we had at the HCL Awards Evening.
Herts Catering Limited (HCL) are the company that employ our kitchen staff and help to provide all our wonderful school meals.
The cooks had been shortlisted for Primary School Catering Team of the Year for serving over 200 meals and were invited to an elaborate awards ceremony at The Hilton Hotel in Watford on Thursday 14th May. After a wonderful meal the evening was hosted my Des Coleman from East Enders and it started with a promotional video starring our ladies and William Ransom children having their lunch!
Our award was the second one to be announced and there were some excellent nominations so we were all a bit nervous. However, when they started to read out about the winner we knew they were talking about us and Henny Matthews lead her team up on to the stage to collect their well-deserved award!
Hitchin Schools did particularly well as Highbury Infants also won award for serving under 200 meals a day!
However, that wasn’t the end for us as Henny was also to be awarded her Long Service Award. She has worked at William Ransom for 21 years and we were all really pleased to be able to celebrate this achievement with her!
Once all the awards were finished we spent the rest of the evening dancing the night away to Fake That!
What a great night and congratulations to: Henny Matthews, Vanessa Lemm, Yvonne Wareham, Gill Harper and Cindy Terresfield
