Park’s community spirit “buzzing” with record numbers at occupier quiz night

20 March 2019

Silverstone Park’s 2019 social calendar is well under way with a popular pizza lunch and a record-breaking quiz night the latest events to keep occupier businesses and customers entertained.

The calendar is designed to develop a strong sense of community at the high-tech business estate and events are arranged based on feedback from occupiers.

In 2018 more than 40 stand-alone and repeat events were held. As many again are planned for 2019…

Back by popular demand, the recent occupier pizza lunch drew staff from 26 businesses.

Furthermore, the event enabled Silverstone Park Commercial Director Roz Bird to welcome the seven new companies to have located to the estate in January and update occupiers on developer MEPC’s forthcoming plans for the 31-acre site.

The quiz night was contested by 90 staff representing teams from 18 different occupiers – the biggest turn-out in five years for such an event.

Held in the neighbouring Silverstone Circuit’s Paddock Diner, the quiz was won by Mercedes-AMG F1. Closest challengers were 3C Test, the Silverstone Technology Cluster and Spyder Club…

Silverstone Park’s Occupier Liaison Officer Ruth Williams who chairs the estate’s social committee commented: “The pizza lunch is a great way for people to bump into each other and get to know one another; our quiz night was something else again with so many people prepared to stay after work to take part. It’s fair to say the community spirit at Silverstone Park is buzzing!

“We listen carefully to our occupiers to ensure our social calendar offers something for everyone. Already we have plenty more dates planned for 2019 – including our summer BBQ and a revised date for our sports evening.

“As ever, we look forward to welcoming our occupiers and customers to future events.”
