20-10-2016 – Celebratory Dinner

In October 2016 a dinner was held at Quayside Exchange, Sunderland for over 100 people to mark the first three and a half years of Sustainable Sunderland.

After being greeted at the entrance by a volunteer the guests networked in the reception rooms. Even though no strict rule had been communicated to the guests they mostly dressed quite smartly for the occasion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whilst the guests networked in the reception rooms there were banners from a variety of organisations on display. There were also leaflets and information packs available.

The Quayside Exchange function room provided a relaxed setting for the guests, along with facilities to show presentations from a laptop about Sustainable Sunderland’s achievements so far.

There were several guest speakers from One Planet Middlesbrough and Greening Wingrove, Newcastle.

 

Towards the end of the evening the Sustainable Sunderland Partners were given a memento of their involvement.

 

Finally, those who wanted the evening to keep going could get up onto the dance floor.

 

 

A huge thank you to everyone who came along!
