The club celebrated with colleagues and customers, running special promotions, including bargain bingo, big money sessions and special parties, held on the evening of 18th March and the afternoon of Sunday 20th March. In hosting both an afternoon and evening event all customers had the opportunity to join the fun and each received a free gift and glass of bubbly on arrival.
Regular players also got a special treat when Huyton’s previous manager Karen Gilligan, now manager at Club 3000 Wigan, popped back for the night to see many familiar faces. The Huyton club is very much focused on the local community and prides itself on its customer service. During the parties sixteen members of staff, who have each worked at the club for fifteen years or more, were presented with long service awards.
Julie Honeyman, catering supervisor, who has worked the Huyton Club for 25 years, said, “I was completely surprised to receive my award. It’s a great place to work, we are all like an extended family and this award means a lot to me. I am very grateful for the recognition.”
Robert Cahill, who has worked for Club 3000 for 10 years and as the manager of Huyton since 2020 said, “It has been an amazing two weeks of celebrations with our wonderful customers and staff. I am so proud to present these long service awards to staff who have shown such loyalty to the club for many years. The ways of playing bingo may have changed over the years, but the first-class customer service and community spirit at our club has remained the same.”
