While we spend most of our time working hard to provide great service to our clients, the team here at GL also love to have a great time together. This year, the Summer Day Out proved to be an amazing opportunity to do just that – while taking part in a little team building and exercise at the same time!
The summer of 2017 brought us to the Stubbers Activity Centre in Upminster, where an enjoyable day was spent trying out a wide range of activities – from high ropes to canoeing, raft building out on the lake to laser tag.
After being split into smaller teams, everyone set off in a head-to-head competition to prove themselves in a series of challenges, in which our leadership, teamwork and determination were put to the test.
All members of the groups rose to the challenge, conquering fears of heights and water to support their team throughout the day. My personal favourite was the raft building despite ending the day with very wet feet!
Finally, after some tense anticipation and in-depth judging, Team 4 was announced as the overall winner of the day with a medal and certificate to display with pride.
A fantastic day out for all organised by the wonderful GL Social Committee. The whole GL family agreed that it was a resounding (and exhausting!) success and we can’t wait to see what’s planned for next year!
