Family Fun Day
Published 30 September, 2018
September saw SB Components and Priden Engineering come together to host their first joint family fun day. The Management team decided that since the acquisition of Priden Engineering in April 2018 a strategy is required to encourage co-operation and collaboration between the two companies. So, in order to help facilitate a partnership/alliance it was decided to hold a family fun day for both SB Components and Priden Engineering employees. It was a great way for people to socialise and get to know each other on an informal level outside of the work environment.
The Fun Day was hosted at Leverington Sports and Social Club near Wisbech. There was lots of fun to be had throughout the day with numerous complementary activities including bouncy castles and inflatables, two live bands, face painting for the children, and a BBQ, popcorn and candy floss machine
Different competitions were run throughout the day, one of which was who could survive the bucking bronco for the longest amount of time, this proved to be very popular and definitely brought out the competitive side in people.
People attending the fun day were also entered into a free prize draw raffle, some of the fantastic prizes included a spa day, a champagne hamper, a safari day out, Hamleys toy vouchers, and a meal out at The George of Stamford to name a few kindly donated by some of our suppliers.
The feedback from people attending the event was fantastic, staff from both companies thoroughly enjoyed the day and felt like it brought them together. Dan from SB said "A big thank you from my family and myself for what was a fantastic day, the atmosphere was great everyone was smiling and enjoying themselves. The entertainment was great and the time just flew bye which is always a good sign" Scott from Priden also said "We had a great time at the fun day and it was great to see so many people in attendance, looking forward to the next one."
Group Managing Director, James Warren said "I am really pleased with the turnout we have had today from both companies, this was a fantastic day and this will be something we do again in June next year."
