Recently, on a sunny day in Kent, a group of employees gathered to embark on a mini tour of the east of the county; and you know what they say…..what goes on tour, stays on tour!

But if I were to end there then that would be a very poor read!

The employees of the Skelton Group gathered on a lovely sunny Saturday morning and were greeted by two members of YMS Travel staff to alight a big red double decker bus which would be our transport for the day.  Our first stop was the Hop and Huffkin, a bar and dining room in the heart of Sandwich which not only boasts an excellent menu created with locally sourced ingredients, but it also serves locally produced beers, ciders, wines and juices, endorsing the nearby farmers and fishermen alike and helping to support the local economy; something that we at Skelton Group are keen to advocate wherever we can.

After a first class lunch we were driven to the Griffins Head, a traditional English pub in the countryside village of Chillenden; and with the weather still on our side we were able to enjoy our drinks in the beautiful gardens.

At Skelton Plant Hire we feel it is important to invest in our customers by constantly investing in new plant and machinery, new ICT systems and training so that our staff can provide a faultless service.  We felt that after several busy winter months it was time to invest in our staff and give something back to them to show our appreciation for all their hard work – and we didn’t want to wait until Christmas!
