MPA celebrated 30 years since it was founded by Mike Paul our Chairman. The celebrations got underway on June 22nd at the most amazing venue, Ardencote Manor Hotel in Claverdon, not far from where Mike first set up office in 1998.  We were blessed with wonderful sunshine and guests and staff, 135 in all, enjoyed a champagne reception in the exquisite gardens prior to dinner in the Conservatory.

Everyone enjoyed the amazing food and superb wine, after which Phil McGovern, our Managing Director, said a few words and announced the launch of the MPA Charitable Foundation.

The aim of the MPA Charitable Foundation is to continue to give back to the local community and we saw the evening as an opportunity to incorporate the charity by raffling two beautiful hampers filled with delicious treats, with monies raised being donated to the MPA Charitable Foundation.

This was no ordinary raffle, the raffle tickets could be found within beautiful gold balloons, with everyone having to burst their balloons at the same time, to reveal their raffle tickets – with the first winning ticket drawn later being found to be floating on the ceiling at the Ardencote Manor Hotel, nonetheless, the hampers were gratefully received – it was great fun.

Our Chairman Mike Paul then took to the stage and thanked everyone for all their support over the years, having come a long way and proceeding to go from strength to strength.

Mike said, “We can lay our success and growth firmly at the door of our reputation for excellence to which we continue to be truly committed”.

The night continued with everyone on the dance floor boogying to “Souled out 2 Funk”, an eight-piece live band, with most people residing on the dance floor most of the night.

The feedback during the evening and since has been amazing;

I would like to thank you for a wonderful evening.  The setting, both grounds and room, was superb. The food, particularly the beef, was first class, and we were lucky to have such lovely company on our table….and we will not forget the band in a hurry – truly excellent.  Congratulations on 30 years in business and here’s to many more.” – Mr and Mrs Hughes

“I just wanted to say a heart-felt thank you for the event on Friday evening.  We both had such a good time.  It takes an amazing amount of thought, preparation and communication to get a superb event like this off the ground so I just wanted to say thank you.” – Nicola, Standard Life

“Grace thanks so much for choreographing such an incredible and memorable evening and Phil for inviting us to be part of it.” – Hannah, Mischievous Marketing

With guests at the hotel even commenting at breakfast;

Everyone looked so lovely, such beautiful dresses and everyone was enjoying a wonderful night

This was a truly unforgettable evening – Here’s to another 30 years of MPA Financial Management Limited.

In the words of a great song from the top ten charts of 1988 ` THE ONLY WAY IS UP `
