Life’s a Beach
18th September, 2019
Friday 19th July 2019 marked the date of the first Haggards Crowther staff summer party and with just enough sunshine to qualify it as British summer time, we took to the beach.
The beach in question was not festooned with deckchairs, donkeys and kiss me quick hats, however. No, this beach came with volleyball courts, the perfect setting for a little intercompany rivalry as teams took part in an afternoon volleyball tournament.
Whilst all very good natured, it was great to see team dynamics at play as colleagues from across the business came together to discuss tactics – some with greater levels of success than others! Having divided into teams, the weather held out just long enough for team ‘Penguins’, consisting of Andrew Haggard, May Dickson, Dimitris Loukis and Tahmidur Rahman to be crowned champions.
Following the event, the teams retired to refresh themselves and enjoy a well-earned meal and a few drinks. The drinks were mainly required to try and wash down the sand that had been ingested as a result of some slightly over enthusiastic attempts to return the ball which ended in the player landing face down.
A great day was had by all and the office has been full of chat about the day’s events. The office has also been full of sand – which is still turning up in some remarkable places!
