Factory transformed into seaside funfair to reward efforts of Cleveland Bridge workforce

16th July 2019

Cleveland Bridge UK transformed part of its extensive manufacturing site in Darlington into a seaside funfair to celebrate the summer and reward the hard work of its staff.

A large area of the 23-acre site in Yarm Road became ‘Cleveland By The Sea’ for the company’s workforce and their families to enjoy a variety of traditional British summertime entertainment.

More than 700 guests enjoyed funfair rides including dodgems, a helter skelter, a pirate ship, cups & saucers and flying chairs as well as having the opportunity to test their skills on a surf machine and a crazy golf course.

For the younger guests the company laid on a soft play area and a large sandpit as well as an expert face painter who transformed the children into exotic animals and superheroes!

All set to a soundtrack of live music, which was performed by a collection of North East acts, ‘Cleveland by The Sea’ offered classic seaside fare of Fish & Chips and ice cream, which was enjoyed by many in glorious sunshine from the comfort of deck chairs.

Chris Droogan, Managing Director at Cleveland Bridge UK, said: “The seaside funfair theme was a real success and guests of all ages enjoyed everything that was going on. Cleveland Bridge UK is very proud of its workforce and there is a strong sense of family in the company, so it was great for the team to bring their families to where they work and have a wonderful fun time together.”
