Solar Summer Party of Success

Posted by Jess Jepson on 29 September, 2016

A BBQ dinner, African Drumming, Segway tours, Go Ape sessions, spa time and an overnight stay at Center Parcs; Solar Communications went all out to treat the team to some well-deserved time away at this year’s Solar Summer Party!

Our team enjoyed a fantastic couple of days away in celebration of the company’s successful first half year. We engaged in team building sessions, received a company update from our CEO John Whitty, and generally relaxed and spent some quality time together out of the office, to reward all the hard work and dedication of the last few months.

Staff came together from both Solar offices and we were joined by our new colleagues at RDC, bringing the whole company together to further develop our strong relationships.

Mini buses departed from both our Manchester and Chippenham offices on Thursday lunchtime, arriving at Center Parcs where our team spent their afternoon at leisure, exploring the rural grounds and subtropical swimming paradise.

After a leisurely afternoon our team regrouped in the evening for a company update and BBQ, followed by games, a limbo competition and the chance to win an iPad mini.

Friday began with group team building in African drumming sessions; a great opportunity to share some quality time together. The team then had the opportunity to throw themselves into the original Go Ape experience; with the chance to fly down the zip-wires, leap off the Tarzan Swing and tackle the high rope obstacles. Those who didn’t opt for the trees were taken out on a Segway adventure tour in the forest, heading out together onto the woodland trails.

This really was a fantastic couple of days with a brilliant team! We’re sure that there will be more to follow over the next few months as we continue to grow and celebrate our success together as a company.
