We recently had a well-deserved and long overdue after-work social to celebrate our recent achievements, such as the move to a new, bigger premises and the employment of new staff, who have already shown great signs of progression and skill. The fact that our after-work social events allow us to spend quality time with each other outside of the office and workshop is particularly important to us being a small business, where teamwork and communication is key.

We enjoyed dinner at the Parson’s Pig, a local pub in Crawley, and afterwards went to TeamSport Karting, an indoor go karting track in Crawley town centre, where Ken, Steve and Ian participated in the venue’s special ‘race night’. Our three members of staff competed against ten other teams in total; it was a very action-packed evening that involved lots of pit stops, the changing of drivers and adrenaline. Although we didn’t win any of the races, our three drivers thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the rest of us had a lot of fun cheering our team on from the sidelines! We look forward to our next after-work social.
