'Headless Chicken Day'


Every year a team from the Brewery takes over the running of the managed public house that wins the previous years ‘Sales Elite Award’ for one day, in an event fondly known as 'Headless Chicken Day”'


The sales elite public house winner for 2012 – 2013 was the Yachtsman in Hamworthy, Poole. Whilst the team at the Yachtsman enjoyed their Christmas Party, the team from the Brewery ran around like ‘headless chickens’ and managed the pub for the day. Every year the ‘headless chickens’ donate all of their tips to the company’s annual charity. This year, they raised over £100 from the all of the generous and supportive guests at the Yachtsman, which will be donated this to this year’s charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.

Here’s a photograph of the team being briefed by the General Manager for the day Heidi McLaughlin, who previously ran the Yachtsman from 2008 – 2010 and now works as the Regional Academy Trainer at the Brewery.
