We like to work hard and play hard at Neo PR, so last Friday afternoon we left the office early to spend some time as a team. Fun was most definitely on the cards and it involved water balloons and gin! It was a fabulous afternoon and we were even joined by lovely Louise who is currently on maternity leave. Here are some highlights and what we got up to….
First on the agenda was a mini water balloon championship. It involved games like keep the balloon on the spoon and ‘pop squat’ – a relay race where we had to pop the balloons whilst squatting. Safe to say there were a LOT of giggles. The finale was a quick game of Director Dodgeball which involved Ash, Jo and Gemma trying to dodge an assault of water bombs!
Laura had the best idea of the day by far – she wore a shower cap to keep her hair dry! Hannah also took a rather dramatic tumble during the events, but we promise no more Neo PR-ians were harmed in the fun…!
Once we had dried off, it was time to become gin connoisseurs. Led by Sophie and Ash, the resident gin enthusiasts, we tasted five different gins and made a record of the different tasting notes and scents on our tasting cards. It was a really fun session and we learned a lot about the history of gin. Did you know the UK used to have a real alcohol problem until the government bought in legislation to regulate distilling of gin in the 1700s? A pint of gin used to be cheaper than a pint of beer!
It just wouldn’t be a Neo PR social without food and Ash cooked up a proper storm on the barbie. Everyone in the team brought along their own dishes from yummy veggie scotch eggs to an amazing potato salad so it was a real feast for everyone to enjoy!
Francesca had even made us an epic Neo PR cake complete with the logo on the top. It was maple syrup flavoured and was a whopping four tiers high!
As you can see it was a very fun filled afternoon and it was a great way to let our hair down. We are always very busy at Neo PR so spending time together as a team is really important to us!
