This year the BPMA achieves an impressive milestone – three quarters of a century serving the British pump industry

To celebrate 75 years of unbroken service to both its members and the wider pump industry, the BPMA will be staging a special 75th Anniversary Gala Dinner. Held at the impressive De Vere Heythrop Park Resort in Oxfordshire, on Thursday 6th October, the event promises to be the highlight of its year-long celebratory activities.

Heythrop Park boasts a unique and luxurious venue set in 440 acres of stunning Oxfordshire Countryside.  Dating back to 1710 this quintessential English country estate seamlessly combines elegance with style. Located on the edge of the Cotswolds, with Oxford on the doorstep, it is also close to Blenheim Palace and the picturesque Cotswold villages of Burford & Chipping Norton. The Resort also offers a championship 18-hole golf course, superb health club facilities, and exceptional dining.

A glittering champagne reception, held in the main hall and accompanied by live music, will be followed by a stunning 4-course dinner with fine wine, and further musical entertainment direct from London’s West End. More music and dancing courtesy of the Swinging Little Big Band, will ensure a great time is had by all.

BPMA President, and MD at Grundfos Pumps, Peter Reynolds, said of this anniversary year:

“Being elected as President of the BPMA is a great honour and one which has been heightened by the added good fortune of my term in office coinciding with its 75th Anniversary. We have a number of activities planned throughout the year, all of which will highlight this impressive milestone, but the culmination will surely be our special 75th Anniversary Dinner Dance.  I very much look forward to hosting the event and to welcoming friends and colleagues, old and new, to what we believe will be a fitting tribute to the past endeavours of our industry Association. It will also serve to herald the next 75 years of BPMA service”.

BPMA members, along with their clients, partners, friends and colleagues are all invited to attend this wonderful night of celebration.
