Here at All Answers we work hard, play hard. It’s been months since a social update on the blog and as the relentless rain hammers the All Answers office roof it’s better to recall some more pleasant times the staff have had in recent months. We’ve had plenty of social gatherings and activities going on whilst we’ve been helping you with your essays and least of all was the monumental yearly pilgrimage to Centre Parcs.
Centre Parcs has been an engrained tradition within the company since 2003, allowing everyone at AA to let off some steam at the end of the busy exam period. This year was no different; barbecues’ saunas and alcohol were the backbone of the weekend with a few members of staff nursing headache’s come Monday morning. Centre Parcs is also the location for AA’s very own version of “The Oscar’s” – when staff members are awarded trophies based on achievements throughout the year.
One of AA’s most recent haunts has been a Greek restaurant known as Emilio’s, about half a mile away from the office serving traditional Greek grub. Bar a few missing entrées and botched deserts, meals at Emilio’s go down very well with the AA team in attendance, it’s a shame about the other patrons who often end up witnessing the horrific site of some members of staff partaking in traditional Greek dancing!
We haven’t JUST been stuffing our faces with Moussaka and bellies with beer recently, as our very own CEO Tony Eynon has launched an All Answers paintball division named The Marauders. The team have mustered their weapons and are currently training in the mountain terrain of Afghanistan (ok maybe just the local park) in preparation for monthly battles in the Millennium paintball league.
