Baumot (UK) was the winner of Silverstone Park’s fun sports evening for occupiers – the latest social event to be arranged by the business estate for companies on site and their staff.
Six teams took part in disciplines that included egg and spoon, sack, wheelbarrow, three-legged and space hopper races, penalty shoot-out, ‘welly wanging’ and tug o’ war.
After much sweat and near disaster, Baumot emerged victorious ahead of teams from TD Group/Lunaz Design and Edge Tech (see quick video here).
Porsche Experience Centre, PUNCH Flybrid and Silverstone Park developer MEPC also entered teams.
The sports evening is part of the calendar of popular social activities that MEPC arranges for occupiers to promote informal gatherings and a sense of community amongst businesses.
It follows a popular annual summer BBQ held in July. On-going are weekly fitness ‘boot camp’ and five-a-side football sessions.
The events continue next week with a Macmillan Coffee Morning ‘fundraiser’ from 10:00-11:30 on Thursday 26 September in Silverstone Park’s Innovation Centre. This includes an annual ‘bake off’.
Just a fortnight later comes another quiz night – 18:00-20:00, Thursday 10 October in the Pit Stop Café, Silverstone Circuit.
A second fundraising activity, Wear It Pink, then takes place on Friday 18 October for all companies and their staff across the estate.
Ruth Williams, Junior Asset Manager for Silverstone Park, commented: “Our sports evening was another great success with people from a variety of businesses interacting with one another in an informal, no pressure environment.
“A sense of community is very important for businesses when choosing where to locate to and customer feedback is something we take seriously in shaping the offering at Silverstone Park.
“Our social events are designed to appeal to all tastes and – no pun intended – we now look forward to our annual Macmillan Coffee Morning and ‘bake off’ next week!”
