Manchester Airport Group celebrate 80 supersonic years

Last year was a significant one for the airport. It celebrated its 80th birthday in June in which they looked back on what had been achieved and also forwards to the future.

As part of the celebrations The Concorde Conference Centre at Manchester Airport’s Runway Visitor Park recently played host to over 180 corporate guests as they celebrated the Airport’s milestone birthday. To mark the occasion, there was an aviation fun filled evening with guests checking in on arrival issued with boarding passes before dining under the wings of the iconic Concorde.

Tour of Britain – one day ahead!

Phil Jones MBE, the Managing Director of Brother UK, will ride the entire route of the 2018 Tour of Britain in September, one day ahead of the elite professional riders who will tackle the same demanding eight-stage course. Accompanying Phil will be cancer survivor James Golding, the world record holder for the greatest distance ridden in seven days (2842.2km), in pursuit of an ambitious fundraising target of £50,000 for the Dave Rayner Fund, a voluntary organisation that supports young British riders racing abroad.

Exciting opportunities + food for thought

The beginning of July brought two great speakers to K-Club’s regular Salford networking event – Thomas Kirk, Director of family firm Francis Kirk Group plus Jo Whitfield, Retail Chief Executive of Co-op Food.

So, after the usual excellent breakfast courtesy of hosts AJ Bell Stadium, Thomas Kirk took to the mike. With his main focus on exporting, Tom spoke about his family business – Francis Kirk Group – 150 years old this year.
