Belsey Bridge Christian centre marks milestone

BelseyBar450The Belsey Bridge Christian conference centre has celebrated reaching 10,000 guest nights in a year for the first time, less than four years since its relaunch by the Christian Conference Trust.

Over the last four years the centre, based near Ditchingham on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, has seen a steady increase in groups using its facilities, the latest of which is the addition of a new bar and lounge area.
Assistant Chief Executive, Grant Farrant, said: “A significant milestone has just been reached by exceeding 10,000 guest nights in a year. This is the first time the centre has achieved such a high figure and is a sign of how popular the venue is becoming.
“It was also a fitting tribute that 10,000 guest nights was reached whilst the Revd Canon Dr Chris Burdon was running a Clergy Leadership Programme for the Diocese of St Edmundsbury & Ipswich. Chris has witnessed first hand the developments at Belsey Bridge over the years and has been involved in numerous conferences - both as an organiser and a delegate.”
To celebrate the achievement Erica Strange, from Belsey Bridge, was pleased to be able to give Chris a free drink in the brand new bar and lounge area that has recently been opened at the centre.
The CCT trustees, who were meeting at the centre, also celebrated the occasion with the staff team who made the achievement possible.
