Patricia Mullen, Marketing Director comments

‘The 100+ guests enjoyed the bubbly, the views, buffet,  dancing and music over a 5 hour period which was great fun – which is exactly what we wanted to celebrate what we think is a great achievement. We were so pleased to see the guests which  included industry friends from all over the world – Canada, South Africa, France, Italy, Brazil & N. Ireland. It was great they made this effort to join. in addition equally wonderful to share this evening with our IH  team and many local friends and family who have helped us get to this grand age!!  The highlight of the evening was the passionate speech made by Trevor about what this industry means to our economy and how little people realise it. We also heard from the founders son, Alex Mitchell,  about how the school started and the first 2 students were from turkey being taught in their living room! Really interesting to hear how we have developed and hope to continue into the next decade with as much enthusiasm  that has helped create what we have today!!’

The celebrations continue next week with our 40 year boat party for our students and visiting agents.  Look out online for #40YEARSOFIHNEWCASTLE
