So, it’s that time of the year again, where we begin to turn our thoughts for the next office Christmas party. As our companies are based in Brighton, we planned to organise our Christmas Party somewhere in London. This is to break away from the rudimental coastline atmospheric environment that we have every year. But exactly where in London should we hold the Christmas Party? Looking at the Christmas Party event page online, there were many areas of London to choose from. We decided to draw lots on the potential location in London – namely, East London, City of London, North London or South East London. Within the small Human Resource unit, the majority of us lot for East London. So, East London it is! Given this is our first time organising a Christmas Party away from Brighton, we were quite overwhelmed so as to how do we start planning for it.
Emma, a colleague of mine, recommended to call up Coachhire4U to sought out for assistance in putting together the Christmas Party to be held at East London. According to her, together with her family, she has had a good experience engaging Coachhire4u coach hire service for a group family outing, a few months back. I rang up the hotline number, introduced myself and shared with the sales specialist on my requirements. We spoke for good half an hour as I had much doubt to clear.
Following from the phone call conversation, before days’ end, I received an email from Coachhire4U, providing me with the Christmas Party venue options plus the necessary coach hire arrangements to ferry a group of 50 pax over. In conversation with the organising group, we unanimously select a Christmas Party located nearing to the Isle of Dogs in East London. The party venue that we have come to select is called ‘The Space’ situated at 269 Westferry Rd, Isle of Dogs, London E14 3RS. As the Isle of Dogs is not a far from the River Thames it is an ideal location for the group, as we are naturally attuned with the sight of the ‘watercourse’. And so, we secured our booking.
Nearing the actual event date, I received a gentle reminder Coachhire4U on our upcoming bookings. I was quite impressed with Coachhire4U natural delivery of professionalism and good service quality to date. The much awaited day came and long before we know it, we onboard Coachhire4U coach hire – making our way to East London, Isle of Dogs. We had a smooth journey. At reaching at the event venue, we were astounded with the mutli-purpose arts center set in a delightful and architecurally significant 19th Century Presbyterian church.
In a joint Christmas party, we were served to Prosecco welcome drinks, a 3 course sit down dinner, after dinner coffee and mince pies and DJ entertainment. Crackers and decorations were decorated all around the venue with the classic Christmas centrepiece. As the night when along, I could see the many happy faces of my colleagues enjoying their time at the party. The night came to an end, and like always, our Coachhire4U coach hire driver was very prompt to pick us back. Ensuring that all our belts were fastened, he drove us back to Brighton. What did last Christmas Party was totally fun-filled and this was with the great help from the Coachhire4U!
