In the September newsletter we featured a story on getting out of the office with your colleagues for some teambuilding fun. The response was overwhelming, and we have been inundated with requests for teambuilding as yearend functions. It seems after a tough year, companies are wanting to reward and thank their staff for long hours and good work! With this in mind we have launched some new packages based on YOUR requests. Feel free to contact us to help plan an event to suit your requirements or ask advise on what’s best for you.
