Venture Trust staff gathering

Feedback from a recent residential staff training event by Venture Trust.

venturetrustceilidh"We selected Wiston Lodge for our annual staff gathering due to its great location and relatively short distance to travel for the central belt based staff. We wanted somewhere to get away from it all and Wiston was the ideal venue.

"As soon as we arrived our staff teams could relax into a warm friendly atmosphere with roaring fires in each breakout room. The  Wiston lodge staff were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating and the food was truly wholesome and tasty. We had total run of the whole building and bunk houses for three days which helped immensely when breaking out for discussion groups and particle exercises. During breaks there was tea and coffee on tap and beautiful grounds for a leg stretch and head clear.

"The bedrooms were all spacious, warm and comfortable although the downstairs showers took a little getting used to and certainly woke you up in a morning!! The lodge helped organise a ceilidh in the gym area with a local band which just topped off a perfect few days away to get staff reenergised and enthused for the forthcoming year ahead, and judging from all the positive comments from the staff we will definitely be back next year.

"Thanks to everyone at Wiston for making it such a memorable occasion."
