Our team have just returned from the annual seven Wales weekend where the teams across our studios get together to enjoy the wonderful scenery Wales has to offer.
Friday was a day planned for the adventurous – we met at ZipWorld at Blaenau Ffestiniog Slate Caverns. Many ventured into the disused mine to take park in Bounce Below – an underground net bouncing adventure, whilst others took to the trees, bouncing 60ft up on Europe’s longest net walkway. The adrenaline junkies among us took part in the Titan Zip Line, Europe’s largest zipping zone. They flew down 3 zips, 1890m in length and half the height of Snowdon! A great way to take in the amazing view of the quarry. This led to a well-earned BBQ and drinks and relax in the hot tub and sauna.
On Saturday the team ventured to the Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth, set over 7 acres of land overlooking Snowdonia National Park. The centre showcases examples of environmentally responsible buildings, sustainability, waste management including composting and organic growing, all demonstrating how we can reduce our impact on the planet.
Saturday evening brought us to our annual pub quiz, hosted by Simon. We’re a fairly competitive bunch, and the top spot was stolen from the reigning champions – so we have a new team to beat next year!
We had a fantastic weekend and can’t wait for next year’s event. A few photos of what we got up to are posted below.
