London office enjoys annual summer day out
In keeping with our annual tradition, employees at our London headquarters recently attended our Summer Day out at the idyllic Wraysbury Lake in Surrey
As well as a range of team-building activities, we also engaged in a spot of Dragon Boat Racing! Each team was allocated an animal from the Chinese Zodiac, which gave them a theme for team costumes and a mascot.
All of the activities were varied to suit different skill sets and designed to encourage communication, problem solving and time management. Whilst dragon boat racing was the main activity of the day, there were also other challenges to test us, including a minefield game, pistol shooting and even egg-launching!
The egg launching finale proved very competitive with each team stepping up to show off their trusted catapult building skills. Some teams fared better than others – we had teams whose wooden egg went flying across the car park, whilst other eggs sadly just rolled onto the floor.
Whilst all the teams performed very well, Team Rat proved they had the edge, winning first place overall! Other winning teams included Team Pig for their creative team name ‘Don’t go bacon my heart’ and Team Monkey for their winning mascot- a large, cuddly monkey toy in a banana outfit.
After much activity in very hot weather, we were delighted to end the day in the pub for well-earned refreshment or two.
