A bitter-sweet celebration

ABOUT 40 staff of Williams and Gosling Limited held their Christmas party with close family and friends at the Williams and Gosling Warehouse Distribution Centre at Wailada in Lami yesterday.

The staff, who were under the Williams and Gosling Transport Department, not only held their Christmas party but also bid farewell to the Warehouse centre which was now owned by another business body.

Williams and Gosling Transport Department staff Mathew Chand said they were surely going to miss the old warehouse after serving about 20 years there.

Mr Chand said the transport department was relocating and it was the last time they were going to have their Christmas party at the Wailada depot.

"A lot of us have worked for more than 10 to 20 years here and have had great memories," he said.

"We wanted to bring our families and friends to celebrate with us for the last time before we move to our new location."

Transport Department manager Leone Bale said it was great to see all staff members present at the party because it was a reflection of the bond they had.

Mr Bale said he wanted to wish all the staff of Williams and Gosling especially his department a merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.
