Gatfest 2018


Gatfest, the Gatwick annual staff party was held last month where our Wilson James teams attended to chat, drink and dance with their colleagues across the airport. The event was a huge success and well done to the teams that helped to making Gatfest a fantastic event.

Members of the GAL executive team members including COO C​hris Woodroofe said: “This is the fifth year we’ve run Gatfest and, for me, it continues to be one of the best ways we have of showing our appreciation for all your hard work and enthusiasm. It’s great to take a moment, away from our day jobs, and look back on another really busy and successful summer, particularly in the year that Gatwick celebrated its 60th really busy and successful summer!

“​I look forward to these events immensely, but I know they wouldn’t be possible without a great team effort, so I’d also like to say a personal thank you to everyone who worked with Louisa Craven to help create two truly memorable evenings!”

Development Director Bronwen Jones said: “Gatfest is a way of saying thank you, both to our own staff and to the people who work for other companies across our campus to keep the airport going. The nature of an airport means the jobs we do are 24/7, all year round, and so these events are also an opportunity to say thank you to your partners and families who support you in doing your jobs.”

If the team at Gatwick, could help by filling in the survey here, the team would love to use your feedback to make sure next year is a success!
