Every year a selected team of employees arrange our annual Company Away Day as a small thank you to all staff as well as a day for everyone to get together and socialise across the whole company, as always the events of the day are kept a secret; right up until the start to give everyone an interesting surprise.
This year everyone took part in the BBC’s It’s a Knockout event organised through Off Limits and held in Richmond. Unfortunately the weather on the day was typically British but that did not dampen the spirits of everyone who took part. All games were team games including running around dressed up as huge budgies, attempting to build a Roman Colosseum while another team fired projectiles towards them to knock it back over with catapults and swinging a pendulum to knock other teams off their big rotating inflatable platforms… amongst others.
Although all the games were ‘Dry Games’ everyone got very very wet, running through massive inflatable structures and huddled under umbrellas while laughing at and with our colleagues. Fun was definitely had by all.
After the main event everyone then headed up to London for an evening meal in Rocket, Canary Wharf and a well-earned social drink.
