A host of people attended from friends and family of myself and Paul as well as current and past staff members, suppliers and a variety of valued clients. It was a wonderful opportunity for all of us at Monaco to reflect on the last 10 years to remember how far the company has come from its humble beginnings. Laughs were shared between colleagues remembering the good times that the last decade has served us.

The evening was concluded by gifts being presented to our two longest serving members of staff Sam Workman and Sophie Harper to thank them for their loyal service and hard work.IMG_0382A surprise presentation then followed as Sam and Sophie revealed a beautiful engraved glass trophy to us which was accompanied by a heart felt speech.
