training venue catering executive

Laurence Chell, executive chef at Yarnfield Park Training and Conference Centre is well used to playing to large crowds. When not providing outstanding catering for conferences and training events at Yarnfield, Laurence is leading his band, Quiet the Thief.

The bats are planning something spooky...

A bat hotel at the conference centre?

Bats have come from near and far to unite at the water tower at Yarnfield Park Training and Conference Centre. Some say that the water tower has become a haven for the bats, a bit of peace and quiet from all the building work that is going on at the next-door housing development.

Halloween is not far away...

I have reason to believe that there's more to it than that! I've heard it on the grapevine that a spooktacular event is taking place at Yarnfield Park Training and Conference Centre next month! Fun and games for all the family and plenty of ghouls and ghosts. I wonder what else the bats have got in store for us....Check back soon for more details!!

Conference success for Kerryfresh

Kerryfresh conference at Yarnfield Park

Last month Yarnfield Park hosted a conference for one of the country's premier chilled foods suppliers, Kerryfresh Ltd. Employees from Kerryfresh descended upon our conference centre, based in Staffordshire, for a day of training. According to Kerryfresh the event was an overwhelming success and all of the delegates left feeling highly motivated and enthused. 

"Our conference at Yarnfield Park was a huge success and I have nothing but praise for the attentive and helpful staff who helped make the event run so smoothly." Jeremy, Kerryfresh.

The team at Yarnfield Park were extremely happy to help deliver a successful day for Kerryfresh and receive such positive feedback.

Yarnfield Park organised a BBQ night at the end of the conference, where fantastic food was enjoyed by all. The night was rounded off with a quiz - an entertaining, (competitive!) and fun end to a brilliant conference.

With a head office in Swindon, Kerryfresh Ltd have a number of nationwide Sales Centres, providing local personal services to shops and cafés all over the UK. Kerryfresh were looking for a conference centre in the Midlands that would be a great meeting point for their employees from all over the UK.

It's aimed at entrepreneurs looking for an informal and relaxed working environment, with the opportunity of meeting like-minded people.
