AJW Summer Party 2017 ‘Woods Stock’
‘Woods Stock’ Summer Party Saturday 1st July
What a glorious start to the day, the sun was shining & everyone was excited for the summer party.
A few of us met at the White Horse Inn about 1pm (1 hour before the show), many laughs were had here and everyone was warmed up and ready for ‘Woods Stock’.
Nobody knew what the day was going to bring as this was a Party that not even the FBI knew about.
As we entered the arena at Topfield Farm , Barton Cambs we were greeted by Jezo’s under the AJW Arch where we were ticked off on the team sheets (4 teams – Olympus- Saxon- Regent- Maxima) and given our colour coordinated T-Shirts.
Jezo’s has created an incredible set up , Stage –DJ Booth- Bar- Marquee with a sweet shop-Pizza Van – Obstacle course – Gladiator event (everything had been thought about to make this day one to remember)
The clock struck 3pm which meant it was time for the everyone to get in their teams for the games to commence , we played so many games including– Football Zorbing – Tug Of War- Football Darts – Obstacle water balloon race.
A lot of laughing was going on 🙂 With everyone getting involved and the competition being fierce between the four teams.
The Pizza van was a massive hit , very professional and extremely nice and delicious.
The most positive thing of the whole day from my point of view- Team bonding (every depot spoke to each other and what a way to get the company to interact and working together going forward)
The night time brought the band to the stage who were fantastic, most members of staff were dancing and singing along
Alan Woods (AKA Top Dogg of the firm ) took to the stage and said a few words , he left the stage to a loud applause.
One thing I’d like to add to the write up (not meaning to sound like Cathedral)- no other company would do a party like this, the day was the best work party I’ve ever been to.
Our Sawston team thoroughly enjoyed it and a massive thank you to the Woods family.
Thank you to Daniel Griffiths for the write up.
AJW Staff knows how to throw the perfect karaoke
