Ten Years Young!
Fresh Egg celebrated its 10th birthday last week on April 1st with a spectacular party at the Old Selden Farm Barn. We’ve gone from strength to strength since we were founded in 2000 by Adam Stafford together with his sister, Philippa Stafford and long-time school friend Lee Colbran. For any company in the fast paced world of Internet marketing to have survived, let alone prospered, for more than a decade is a remarkable achievement. Ten years down the line, Fresh Egg now boasts a staff roster of 40 (which we’re seeking to expand – see this blog post) and a strong portfolio of local, national and international clients.
Adam maintains that our success is largely down to the people at Fresh Egg, hence his decision to have a “blow out” and thank everyone for their hard work. That took place at the Old Selden Farm Barn, set in the South Downs National Park of West Sussex. It’s a great venue that consists of a marquee permanently erected inside the barn itself to create a sense of space, style and scale.
Pre-dinner entertainment laid on for the 100 guests composed of Fresh Egg staff, their partners and Fresh Egg customers included a “test your strength” machine, a bucking bronco and a fair ground style shooting gallery which were efficiently cleared away by the time dinner was served by outdoor catering specialists RED Anywhere.
The five-star restaurant-quality menu, prepared under the watchful eye of Master Chef of Great Britain Dan Clarke, was accompanied by RED Anywhere’s exotic and delicious cocktails and of course a free bar!
Live music was provided by South Coast Soul Revue, an eight piece band playing the best of classic and contemporary soul music with a little bit of funk thrown in. The drive of two great singers and a full brass section got everyone onto the dance floor.
Commenting on the whole bash, Adam said: “It was a great night and thoroughly deserved by everyone who has contributed to our continuing success. I know it’s a corny management cliché to say so, but our people genuinely are our most important assets and this party was really for them.”
Fresh Egg continues to grow and expand as we attract more clients to our brand of web design, Internet marketing and Social Media that places SEO at the heart of all we do. We had our best trading year ever during 2009 and are actively seeking new premises in the Worthing area to accommodate the increase in staff required to service new and existing business. The only issue arising from that says Adam is the fact that for Fresh Egg’s 20th birthday party we’ll need a venue that can accommodate 300 at least!
