If you’re looking for service which goes “above and beyond” for this year’s Christmas party, Burrows Lightbourn can offer you the personal attention to meet your needs.

George H. Hayward Jr is the wine and spirits merchant’s catering and events coordinator, and has more than 40 years’ experience in the  hospitality industry to bring to the table.

Mr Hayward is currently arranging dozens of parties for corporate and individual clients this holiday season but says there are still dates available for those wishing to book an event.

He is used to overseeing the fine detail of up to four events a night, and says the busy season only brings out the best in his team’s personalized service.


“When it comes to the Christmas holiday, I’m able to do house and office parties, and whatever occasion arises,” said Mr Hayward.

“I can supply state-of-the-art equipment and bars to complement your Christmas theme, and all my staff are TIPS-trained.

“We can follow your wine and spirits order, or can specify this for you.

“Our wine director Michael Robinson is very professional and can advise you on the wines for your occasion.

“On the catering side, my extensive background in hotels (The Reefs/Fairmont Southampton Resort/Elbow Beach) means I can rise to the occasion, and go above and beyond it.

“We can provide the whole service at your house, whether it’s a Christmas party, birthday or wedding.

“What sets our customer service apart is that once you tell us what you want, we will give you the staff, equipment and décor beyond your expectations.

“Burrows Lightbourn is second-to-none in providing quality brands.

“If you need a special cocktail, I can also advise you on this, according to your party theme.

“For example, I recently organized the bar for a birthday party for a lady who loved pink.

“For the cocktail I created a pink mojito with raspberries as the welcome drink. The bar was also pink along the same theme.

“I pride myself on my catering ability. We can sit down and go over your requirements, and I can advise you on your needs, from drinks to glassware, water and sodas.”

Mr Hayward said he will be able to accommodate your Christmas party requests, with enough notice.

“This is a very busy time of year, with mostly corporate parties, but I also have a few house parties as well. 

“I am capable of doing three or four events a night.

“I have the bartenders at my disposal and can spread myself around to make sure everything is ready to go.”
