Another successful SAIF Banquet and AGM accomplished!

Another successful SAIF Banquet and AGM accomplished!

Polstead Press are proud members of The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF) and have attended their annual AGM and Banquet every year for the past 4 years. Working in the Funeral Industry, it is important for us to ensure that we are not only fully aware of legislative changes, but also that we’re meeting with fellow members to build good strong relationships across the sector.

This year’s banquet theme was “Showtime” and lucky for us, it was only a short trip from our Stowmarket base to the hotel in Colchester! We were treated to hits from The Greatest Showman, performed by a local Performing Arts College, as well as circus acts in between our three course meal, which consisted of mini hot dogs and burgers for Starters and a selection of mini treats for dessert which were called “All the fun of the fair!”. A big thank you to for organising such a wonderful event!

We are always happy to support SAIF, this year we have contributed to the printing of the Menu’s, Welcome Pack and Itineraries, all of which were printed on good quality colour copy stock.

‘It is always an honour to be part of this organisation, which helps ensure all companies within the industry are kept up to date and are working to best practice’ – Tracy Goymer, Commercial Director.

'It is so interesting to meet new people from across the regions and to hear a bit about their background and share life experiences with them!' - Sophie Last, Funeral Account Manager


Next year will be a mammoth trip for us Suffolk folk as it will be held in Glasgow!
