Tec Marina Welcomes the Lord Mayor of London

This afternoon, we were very excited to welcome the Lord Mayor of London to Tec Marina.

During the visit, Lord Mayor Alderman Peter Estlin and his party met with Chris and Gaile Griffiths, founders of OpenGenuis and Tec Marina, and took a tour around the Tec Marina office space.

A selection of Tec Marina business owners and CEOs enjoyed refreshments in the the building’s central atrium with the Lord Mayor.

Peter Estlin is the 691st Lord Mayor of the City of London. A key reason for his visit to Cardiff, the Lord Mayor of London hopes to strengthen the links between the two cities. As part of his wider role, Alderman Estlin promotes the UK as a top global destination for foreign investment, innovation and technology. Read more about the Lord Mayor’s visit to South Wales here.

“I’m delighted to be visiting Cardiff and meeting a number of key business leaders to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing our two cities. Cardiff is an innovative hub with an increasingly vibrant financial and digital offer.”

Tec Marina Manager, Rebekah Raynor, said: “We are very excited to have hosted the Lord Mayor of London and his party. What a great honour that the Lord Mayor chose to visit us here at Tec Marina!”

Gingerbread charity award show held at Tec Marina

Choir Singing

Last month we hosted a fantastic afternoon of tea, cakes and fun when Gingerbread, providers of practical advice and support for single parent families, came to join us for their volunteer award ceremony. The event celebrated the success of their Creating Connections project, which you can read all about here. Our Atrium was the perfect place for the ladies and gents of Gingerbread to receive their awards and enjoy an expertly catered afternoon tea with delicious cakes and sandwiches.

Homemade cakes

We’d like to thank Gingerbread for choosing us as their venue to celebrate their special day and for the lovely feedback they gave us. We’re glad you loved the building and that you felt warmly welcomed! The prize giving concluded with a musical performance by some of the ladies, a lovely note to end on and a great way to thank the organisers of the event. Cakes and sandwiches were handmade by local social enterprise caterers. All produce is locally sourced and all proceeds go towards a great cause.
