Paul, Peter, Jamie and Luke celebrated 25 years of Plus Accounting with staff members on Saturday 8 July at Ashdown Park Hotel.
A number of the team arrived at the venue, Ashdown Park Hotel, by minibus at midday, at the hotel they were met by the rest of the team and made their way to a private area where a delicious BBQ was being prepared! After numerous burgers and plates of eton mess, Paul stood up to announce the teams for the day’s activities.
There were 5 teams of 6 and each team took part in the 5 activities; Clay Pigeon Shooting, Quad Bike Safari, Duck Herding, Falconery and Archery – each team was awarded by the instructor and it got very competitive towards the end!! All the activities were organised by Off Limits and they awarded the winning team with a bottle of champagne! The whole team thoroughly enjoyed the activites but it was back to the hotel to get ready for dinner and secret surprise!
After a lovely dinner everyone was beginning to talk about the secret entertainment promised by Paul!! Not even Peter was aware of what was about to take place!
At about 9pm Paul asked Peter, Jamie, Luke, Anthony, Alex and Chris to stand at the front, they were then whisked away into a room to annouce the surprise!! As they reentered the room, we were performed a classic Dad’s Army sketch!!
- Paul Feist aka Mr Mainwaring

Everyone loved the performance, Paul had even rewritten the script to have an accountancy angle! The characters were a perfect fit and Paul Hopwood played a key role as the German U-Boat Officer aka the VAT man!
