The 4th of October saw the arrival of 90 outstanding employees from the BGL group all eager to turn their hands to a selection of high-adrenaline activities and varied indoor activities.
For the third year running, guests arrived at Grange Farm and were provided with a fantastic finger buffet selection, produced by Sarah and her team at Rutland Gourmet.
In the continuous pursuit to offer fresh and exciting high-octane activities at Grange Farm, Hovercrafts, the Land Rover experience, race buggies and DTV shredders were all available for guests to experience, along with the country pursuit classics, Clay Pigeon Shooting and Archery.
Guests were allowed to participate in two outdoor activities before returning to the marquee for warming hot chocolate with whipped cream, mini marshmallows and chocolate flakes.
Guests were then invited to participate in either a “bar tricks” session, learning an impressive selection of magic tricks to impressive friends and family, or a boozy cocktail making session, learning to flare and combine ingredients or a popular Gin Tasting session. Whilst the activity was underway, the Grange Farm team transformed the main marquee space into a fabulous dining room, ready for a formal evening meal and trophies to be awarded.
Grange Farm welcomed guests back into the marquee with a champagne reception and canapés, before everybody took their seats to watch BGL Group CEO, Matthew Donaldson, offer his thanks to the employees and hand out prizes for activities throughout the day.
Once the awards were wrapped up, tables were invited to the hot carvery station, delivered by Rutland Gourmet. Guests were supplied with a selection of wine from local suppliers and the main course was followed by an assiette of desserts.
Grange Farm regularly hosts a variety of corporate events for companies both locally and nationwide. Please give us a call on 01780 782459 to discuss your event requirements.
Once again, thank you for organizing a wonderful day for us yesterday! We all had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
