Once a year, our MD Tom arranges a day out for everyone at Alitex. It’s always left a surprise until the very last minute, leaving everyone guessing and it has always been a great team building opportunity that we look forward to. This year was no different and on a sunny October morning, we headed off to Wokefield Park in Reading.
The most popular task at first, probably because it was 9am, was the duck herding; an easy start to ease us in to the day, a slight shock to the system when we found out that we were going to be running around after a gaggle of geese (with a little help from some excitable collies.) Whilst sales director John struggled with the whistle, Neil from the installation team was herding ducks like a professional.
A fantastic day was finished off with the panto practice (which had been filmed) being shown to the rest of the team – a special mention to Mark Crewe from the factory, who’s Oscar winning performance landed him many laughs and a huge round of applause. A wonderful day; many thanks to the team at Wokefield Park and to Tom for organising a fun Friday outing.
