WRaP space proving popular as 2020 social calendar gets under way

14 January 2020

More details of social events for Silverstone Park’s occupiers have been released with SIX significant dates for the diary in the first few months of 2020 alone.

Much of the activity will take place in ‘The WRaP’ (Work, Rest & Play) lounge inside the estate’s Innovation Centre.

These begin 10-14 February when staff will be encouraged to donate unwanted items of clothing to charity to coincide with London Fashion Week.

A fortnight later, a Pancake Day event on Shrove Tuesday (25 Feb) has been arranged. Pancakes will be served but this could also include a flipping contest!

The first occupiers’ quiz night of 2020 then takes place on Thursday 19 March inside the usual location (the neighbouring Silverstone Circuit paddock’s Pit Stop Café) before a return to The WRaP on Thursday 2 April for lessons in Easter wreath making. This and the Pancake Day event are both new.

Ahead of all these, a tour of the new Silverstone Experience building (by Silverstone Circuit’s main entrance) has been organised for occupiers on 30 January.

In addition, weekly Pilates sessions have moved to Wednesdays inside the Innovation Centre. Weekly walks from the Innovation Centre and 5-a-side football (Silverstone UTC) will continue on Wednesdays as will boot camp sessions on Thursdays (Silverstone Park grounds).

The schedule is the work of Laura Wilde and Kayleigh Vaughan who have recently joined the Silverstone Park team: Laura as Silverstone Park’s Occupier Liaison & Events Manager and, by default, Chair of the estate’s Social Committee; Kayleigh has taken on the role of Administrator.

Meanwhile, since its launch last spring, The WRaP has proved popular amongst staff on site as well as external businesses (prior to Christmas, Buckingham Business First used it to host a drop-in workshop to offer business advice for small enterprises).

The WRaP, an agile workspace created by Silverstone Park developer MEPC, is in response to feedback from occupiers and has evolved further to include a pool table (pictured) and board games.
