21st December 2020

As December marches forwards to 2021 and we say goodbye to the enigma that has been 2020, we have a time to contemplate the year we have had, glad that we have all come through, one way or another.

Normally at Christmas we have a night out on the town in Ludlow; now for those of us who do not think of ourselves as ‘foodies’ Ludlow is not only a beautiful Georgian town but also one of the food capitals of the UK. As readers flock to Hay on Wye and theatre buffs to the West End, so Ludlow is legendary for those who savor a tasty morsel!

So once a year we dress up to the nines (well perhaps not Keith and Mark-see the photo above for the evidence), we start early in the Ludlow brewery and then head to one of the plethora of fantastic eateries in the town center. In other companies where I have worked the Christmas do is one of the things you know you have to go to, and it hangs over you for most of the year. But the Marches Biogas do is different, for one thing everybody goes (and I mean everybody!) and it’s a jovial affair, with lots of bonhomie and good cheer. The main event being the awarding of Marches Biogas ‘Oscars’. For some companies these would be a dry affair with serious awards, ours is kept firmly at the silly end of the scale with my favorite category being ‘the smelliest lunch eaten in the office’!

The younger members of the team then go to a club and the more gentil members adjourn to the bar and put the world to rights.

So this year, with great reluctance we have decided that we can’t do it for reasons everyone is familiar with. As a result, we are going to postpone until we can do it safely with the kind of gusto that the event requires….when as Mark so eloquently put it, “when the words ‘social’ and ‘distancing’ have become uncoupled’.

So finally for 2020, all the team at Marches Biogas would like to wish all our customers, suppliers and website visitors a very Happy Christmas and may we all have a fantastic 2021!
