Caribbean comes to Shropshire – ResourceBank family day 2018

The ResourceBank 2018 family day brought the delights of a Caribbean steel band, limbo competitions, cocktails and a sandy beach to leafy Shropshire in order to entertain ResourceBank employees and their families.

Nearly 100 adults and 30 children were entertained at ResourceBank’s Managing Director Richard Pearson’s home which had been transformed for the day into a slice of the Caribbean.

Richard said:

 “The event gives me the chance to say thank you to our employee’s families for giving them the support that they do throughout the year.  It is wonderful to meet partners, friends, children, grand-children and grand-parents of our team and make them feel part of the ResourceBank family too.  It has been great to see some of the children grow into adults and we’re delighted that many come to work for us during university holidays, showing that we are a true family friendly employer.”

The Caribbean theme extended to the catering which included goat curry and jerk chicken, a beach bar serving rum cocktails, an inflatable pirate ship and, of course, the limbo competition.  The event of course featured regular favourites such as the ice cream van and face painting.

Julia Lake, senior executive assistant for ResourceBank, organised the day and was delighted with the reaction to the event.

“While we had certain logistical challenges with the delivery of sand for our beach, the event went really smoothly and I was delighted with the effort that everybody made with their Caribbean themed costumes.  Needless to say, the women’s team won the limbo competition!”
