MD Grinding?

MD GrindingHere at Tennant’s we hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and that you are looking forward to the New Year ahead. Our production department is busy right up until the Christmas break. Beryl is keeping a close eye on things and realised we needed some extra help. So she put our Managing Director to work. Which just goes to show that when things get tight it’s all hands to the grind stone (literally) and everyone gets stuck in.


Forest v Charlton

Saturday 6th December. Forest v Charlton, The City Ground.


Ady, Malcolm, Clive and Dave before the match in the very civilized surroundings of Trent Instruments hospitality box. Malcolm Buckley, our host, and his wife Bridget looked after us, and we hardly noticed how poor the footie was in the first half as we tried to fight Ady off the sausage rolls. Although Dave managed to stay the distance (unlike the bowling incident), unfortunately Mark Buckley was unable to come as he was sticking close to the porcelain that day (dodgy prawn apparently).


We were in a prime spot in line with the penalty area to see Forest equalize through a Tesche belter which had Malcolm and Bridget in each others arms, and Ady heading back for the chicken drum sticks.

All in all a fantastic afternoon and great company. Thanks again to the guys at Trent Instruments.

Xmas Cheer

Someone accused the MD of not having any Christmas goodwill. So to prove them wrong he has forced the Warehouse to wrap this weeks deliveries in Christmas wrapping paper. Ho ho ho !!!!20141216_082551

We apologise if you receive such a parcel and mistakenly think it is a gift. Our goodwill doesn’t extend that far, we expect you to pay for the goods!!

Children in Need

Tennant Rubber and Tennant Varipak combined efforts on Friday to show off the worst of their seasonal attire. Christmas jumpers were on display all over the place and as you can see here, it was all done “in the best possible taste”!!

But of course, not to be outdoneBeryl's best Xmas jumper. She’s not such an ugly duckling.
