Gilwell Park in Chingford, London is the home of the Scout Association, the world renowned organisation that is concerned with improving the lives of young people.
The extensive estate includes a head office building housing 200 employees; a training & event centre serving the corporate & wedding market, a multi-purpose activity centre and the White House building – home to meeting rooms, a restaurant, and customer bedrooms.
Also scattered around the grounds are 5 lodges; each capable of housing 50 young people from various organisations.
Following an exhaustive tendering process, Catering by Churchill served its first meal on Monday 5th January, a feat in itself considering that there was just a two week mobilisation window, and that was over Christmas!

- Breakfast, lunch & dinner for White House customers

“This is an exciting new business win for Catering by Churchill; it gives us a great strategic platform for future growth, and a great opportunity to bring our fantastic fresh food culture to a diverse customer base.”

“I knew straight away that we had made the right decision, we have not had food this good for a long time! The level of support we have received has been amazing, within a week of starting we welcomed in excess of 1,000 scouts on a winter camp, and they all went home well fed and happy”
Andy Lanham – Centre Manager
