Last week some of the Green Space team had the opportunity to go to Wimbledon for the day for a well-earned trip out of the office. Throughout the pandemic a core group of staff have worked hard to keep the business moving through numerous lockdowns and restrictions, and the trip was a show of appreciation from the company for their efforts.
The day started at The Lawn Hospitality Tent with a 3-course meal put together by celebrity chef Michel Roux Jr consisting of a salmon starter, lamb main and chocolate ganache dessert. A range of incredible cocktails washed all of this down nicely.
The team had seats on Court 1 and were lucky enough to watch a thrilling game between GB’s Cameron Norrie and NZ’s Alex Bolt, before a quick trip back to The Lawn for a traditional afternoon tea (and strawberries and cream, of course!).
The day ended with a couple more matches on the court and some refreshing Pimms before the trip back to Bournemouth – there may have been a ‘not-so-traditional’ Mcdonalds pitstop on the way home.
The day at Wimbledon was part of the Government’s Event Pilot Scheme, where a range of high-footfall events have been taking place with limited COVID-19 restrictions. All spectators across the site were required to take a COVID test the morning before arriving, and for many it is the first large event that they have attended since the beginning of the pandemic.
“The trip to Wimbledon was a welcome return to normality and the whole day felt safe and carefully planned”, said Green Space UK’s Head of Marketing, Lewis Treleaven. “It was fantastic to get people from across the company together and celebrate the hard work that has gone into successfully keeping business moving over the past 18 months through difficult times. We will definitely be planning more events over the coming months to continue to thank staff for their efforts as the company continues to grow”.
Green Space’s next team event is a trip to Newbury Race Course at the end of July.
