Ivor Thomas says a thank you for 40 years


Three hundred licensees enjoyed an entertaining day out, hosted by Ramsgate-based Ivor Thomas Amusements at The Arch Bar in Ramsgate harbour. It was a celebration for 40 years in business and an opportunity to thank their team, suppliers and customers for their support, some of who have traded with the company for 40 years.

Wine tasting by Andrews and beer tasting by Firkin Ales and a sail around the harbour helped give the licensees a day out to remember.

Ivor Thomas showcased their latest fruit machines and new range of ancillary products including glasswashers and icemakers. Top score on the Batman Pinball was won by a customer from Cinque Ports, Robin Dawson, who won a keg of beer kindly donated by Furkin Ales.

The day wouldn’t have be complete without a charity teddy bear raffle which was won by Ross from The Bat and Ball Gravesend, who donate it to the Children’s ward at Darent Valley Hospital. The raffle raised £465.00 and will be donated to Pilgrims Hospices for their valued contribution to the local community.
