Watford FC unveil Graham Taylor statue.

Posted by on 23 August 2018 | Comments

A statue of former England manager Graham Taylor has been unveiled at Watford FC's ground. Taylor, who died aged 72 in January 2017, led Watford FC from the Fourth Division to runners-up in the old First Division in five years. The statue was commissioned to recognise his "unparalleled achievements as Watford's greatest ever manager", the club said. It stands outside the Hornets Shop at the club's Vicarage Road ground. The bronze statue took award-winning sculptor Douglas Jennings a year to create.

The Apprenticeship Levy...........How are you using yours ?

Posted by on 23 August 2018 | Comments

When the Apprenticeship Levy was launched, I found it interesting talking to other companies on how they were going to use it as no-one appeared to really understand it. Our own HR Manager at the time indicated the funds could be used to up-skill some of our existing work-force, but neglected to mention the study time that would have to be put in on a weekly basis, which would prove impossible operationally during busy parts of the season. At any rate, that isn't what it was designed to do.

The Derby...but not just The Derby !

Posted by on 4 June 2018 | Comments

So what a great weekend, and the summer proper feels like its started. Car park and traffic management, security and stewarding, cleaning at yet another Epsom Derby with some great feedback from our clients and numerous Spotlight Award nominations for our staff. Thank you to all of you who supported this great event. But it's not just about The Derby. We had numerous other events  this weekend including Alexandra Palace, Chepstow, Race 4 Life, Towcester Racecourse, Twickenham London Sevens and Wembley Stadium England v Nigeria amongst others, and its the support and management of those that allows the team working The Derby to focus, so well done to all who supported CSP on this busy, hot, long and tiring weekend.  Caring Safe Professional.

CSP Fantasy Premier League

Posted by on 4 June 2018 | Comments

So the end of the 2017/18 Premier League Season, and after a well fought battle, the winners of the CSP (Living The Dream) Fantasy League table are finalised.A lot of jockeying for the top 3 positions over the last few weeks, although those at the top have mostly performed consistently all season. Last year's winner, O'Neil McLean, has dropped to 7th place this season, but still a lot better than any of the other CSP permanent team, none of whom made the top 10 places. Matthew Rooney came first with Pique Blinders, with Chris Galloway maintaining a close second with The Wanchope Shop. In third place, by the skin of his teeth in the final week, was Dwayne Sewell with Deespurs, so congratulations to all three of you. There will be a prize of £60 of vouchers for Matthew in 1st , £40 of vouchers for Chris in 2nd and £20 of vouchers for Dwayne in 3rd.
