Last week we celebrated AWP’s 10th Anniversary with a staff trip to Newquay.
On Friday afternoon we were hosted by the Duchy of Cornwall at their Nansledan office where we had a delicious pasty lunch, followed by an insightful Q&A from Peter James, Project Manager, about the Nansledan development. We then got suited and booted (PPE wise!) and headed out to explore the development itself, both the areas already completed and those coming out of the ground at the moment . Nansledan is one of AWP’s longstanding projects, and one of our first right at the beginning all those 10 years ago, and it felt the perfect place to visit whilst celebrating our anniversary.
Following an afternoon tea, we then made our way to the Bedruthan Hotel & Spa, located on the beautiful Cornish coastline, where we spent the evening. The spa facilities were welcomed by many of us, and after resting and relaxing, we continued our celebrations with a scrumptious evening meal and drinks.
Our six Annual Values Awards were also presented by Ian, Alex and Pete. Congratulations to the winners for consistently demonstrating our values over the past year:
Letisha Blackmore – Trust

The Saturday consisted of an Escape Room and outdoor activities such as axe throwing, go karting and zip lining. Thank you to Dreadlock Escape Rooms & Adrenalin Quarry for having us.
A further big thank you to Crafty Cakes who provided us with an impressive personalised anniversary cake, some of which was donated to the residents at Exeter YMCA.
That’s it for the celebrations, until next year!
