Please find enclosed our response.

 

1) What is the cost of the venue, to include costs such as sound/lighting hire, food, staffing costs etc – total cost?

 2016 – £11,338

2017 – £12, 800

2018 – £17, 900

 50% of  these costs are covered by sponsorship from external companies.

 2) How many staff members have been invited to each Awards Ceremony?

 2016 – 300

2017 – 300

2018 – 380

 3) Your policy/decision on whether or not staff members are allowed to attend in duty time or whether or not they are required to attend in personal time 

Award Ceremonies are social events which should be attended in the officers/staff own time.  If officers/staff are scheduled to be on duty every effort should be made with their supervisors to allow them to attend, swapping shifts etc.
