Summer BBQ among feast of fun activity for Silverstone Park companies

11 July 2017

Silverstone Park developer MEPC’s summer BBQ for companies and staff based at the estate marked the latest highlight of a busy calendar of social activities that help businesses on site to attract and retain the best people.

The event, added to by music from a steel band, drew 300 people from companies across the estate – the majority operating in the high-tech engineering, others in professional services that support this sector.

Forthcoming dates for the diary include two more annual events organised by MEPC: a fun sports evening on Thursday 7 September within the estate’s grounds and then a coffee morning (Fri 29 Sept) – one of thousands being held nationwide that day in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. This will take place in Silverstone Park’s Innovation Centre.

The above add to an already packed programme of regular recreational events which currently include:

A quiz night – in the neighbouring Silverstone Circuit’s Paddock Diner – is also being planned for October.

MEPC’s Roz Bird, Commercial Director for Silverstone Park, commented: “It was great to see so many people turn out for our annual BBQ and thanks again to Silverstone UTC for allowing us to hold the event on its terrace overlooking the Silverstone circuit which will shortly stage the British Formula 1 Grand Prix.

“We listen carefully to our companies’ needs and are therefore able to arrange events tailored to their staff’s needs – helping them to attract and retain the best people. The events also help get people talking to one another in a relaxed environment which of course can open doors when it comes to business opportunities.

“We have an excellent events co-ordinator in Ruth Williams and I would encourage people – whether with ideas for industry events or additional social activities – to contact her with their suggestions and queries.”
