Former Cadbury employee celebrates 100th birthday at Cadbury World

Former Cadbury employee, Ruth Gwendoline Peachy, has celebrated her 100th birthday this week at the brand’s Bournville-based visitor attraction, Cadbury World.
Ruth, from Kings Norton, started working for Cadbury as a Day Worker in the Bournville factory in 1947 when she was just 30 years old. Ruth left Cadbury in 1962 at the age of 45 to get married. When she left, she was handed a gift and certificate from the directors of Cadbury thanking her for her 15 years of dedicated service.

Ruth said: “Visiting Cadbury World really brought back some fond memories of my time working at the Bournville factory, especially the smell of chocolate and the history of the factory! Celebrating my 100th birthday at Cadbury World was very special to me – thank you to Cadbury World for making it an extra special day to remember for me and my family.”


Get ready for a magical Christmas at Cadbury World

Join Cadbury World on a magic carpet ride of adventure this festive season, as Christmas Celebration Weekends return with a brand-new pantomime and a visit from Santa himself.
This year, a brand-new pantomime invites families on an enchanting quest as the story of Aladdin comes to life live on stage in Cadbury World’s outdoor marquee. Expect a rags to riches tale and a whole new world of interactive fun with a chocolatey twist. Pantomime shows are every Saturday and Sunday starting from 18th November, plus performances every day on 21st – 23rd December and 27th – 30th December.

Elsewhere in the attraction, the sounds of sleigh-bells and reindeer hooves spell the arrival of the big man himself, who will be flying in to Cadbury World to continue the Christmas cheer. In between checking his lists, Santa will visit Cadbury World to entertain families with his very own stage show. With a bag full of presents, there’s a gift for every child – making a visit to the exclusive Cadbury World Santa Show top of everyone’s Christmas list. Be sure to catch Santa every weekend from 18th November plus performances every day on 21st – 23rd December before he flies off for his Christmas duties.


Cadbury World unveils won-deer-ful Christmas creation

Weighing in at over 11 stone, Cadbury World’s chocolatiers have revealed a fantastically festive chocolate creation to celebrate the arrival of the attraction’s Christmas Celebration Weekends.
Inspired by one of the characters found on Cadbury selection boxes, yule be surprised to hear that 70kg of milk and white chocolate went into bringing Santa’s favourite reindeer to life.

Red lustre and edible glitter have been used to give the reindeer’s nose an extra twinkle and help him lead the way through the dark winter evenings, whilst his ‘knitted’ striped scarf and matching mittens will protect him from the cold. The reindeer’s crowning glory is his impressively large antlers which have been hand-piped to precision to support their own weight.

Taking a break from sleigh-pulling duties, the creation will be on display in Cadbury World’s Chocolate Making Zone throughout the festive season – you’d be rude-olph not to visit!

Cadbury World serves up ace day out for AEGON Classic stars

AEGON Classic players have been snapped enjoying an afternoon of chocolate making at Bournville-based attraction, Cadbury World.
Self-confessed chocolate lover and aptly named CoCo Vandeweghe was joined by Alison Riske, as they swapped the grass courts at The Priory Club for white coats and hairnets to enjoy an exclusive Chocolatier Experience at Cadbury World.

Led by the talented chocolatiers at the attraction, the players had the opportunity to learn how to create their own moudled chocolates filled with Cadbury white chocolate. After learning the basics the players then tried their hand at decorating their own chocolate shoes, plaques and tennis balls to celebrate the tournament.

Cadbury World heroes raise £46,000 for charity

Cadbury World has a longstanding commitment to supporting charity projects on a regional and national level, with a number of staff taking part in fundraising or community activities.
One colleague in particular went the extra mile for three charities in 2016. Penny Dyer, sales manager at Cadbury World, helped to raise more than £20,000 in memory of her son, Harry, who sadly passed away in November 2015. Penny took part in a number of activities including organising an evening event. The funds raised were donated to Birmingham Children’s Hospital PICU department, Ronald McDonald House Birmingham and SMA Trust – a charity that raises money for research into Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

Other highlights throughout the year included raising £3,500 for Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, and creating giant chocolate Easter eggs which were auctioned off by Acorns Children’s Hospice, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Help for Heroes. Through raffles and cake sales, employees also raised funds for St Mary’s Hospice.
