A fantastic trip!

26 Nov

The James Cropper Paper Mill Prize:

A warm welcome . . .

WOW – what a great couple of days!

Our GF Smith draw prize was a brilliant success.

The lucky winners plus Les, 'yours truly', Matt from GF Smith & Stefan from Croppers

Thank you to Matt & Nick from GF Smith for organising this fantastic event. Thanks also to Sophie, BethRóisín, Ed, Dom, Martin and Sheldon for taking two whole days out of the office.

On the 18th November 2010, we took the train from Euston at 9.30, arriving at the mill in Burneside, near Kendall at around 1pm.

Following a nice, very welcome lunch, was a comprehensive tour of the fantastic paper mill. There was an awe inspiring yet nostalgic feeling as we walked through the huge mix of old and new.

First stop – the Lab . . .


Manufacturing . . .

Converting and packing . . .

A really interesting, inspiring and educational tour. By the way, if you have the use of 2 tonnes of paper, you can have your very own, unique shade of Colorplan!

Then – to the hotel overlooking Windermere (gorgeous) and a few beers at the Hole int’ Wall.

The next morning we took a very calm (veeeerrry slightly jaded) boat trip on Lake Windermere. Just beautiful . . .

This trip was absolutely fantastic, everyone agreed and the feedback since has be overwhelmingly positive. I am very sure we will be doing this again so please watch this space.

Thanks again to all who made this possible.
