This week saw the Montagu Evans Retail team go on their annual team away trip to celebrate the work done over the past year.
On Wednesday morning, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed (most of us), we hopped on an 8am Eurostar and left London for a day in Bruges. A few hours and a team quiz later we arrived and immediately set about completing the most important task of the day – sampling Bruge’s finest beers.
Next up was lunch in the main square where quiz results were announced and forfeits handed out for those whose general knowledge left much to be desired. The prize for the most ridiculous answer went without question to a fellow retail grad, who apparently believes the (arguably fairly well-known) Jackson 5 hit ‘ABC’ to be sung by Santana. An easy mistake to make, I’m sure.
Post lunch a failed attempt at climbing the tower in the main square was made and considering that to be quite enough cultural experience for one day, we settled back in to our tour of the town’s beer gardens and chocolate shops before catching the train back to London.
All in all, a great way to celebrate a year’s hard work and a fantastic opportunity to get to know the team a bit better.
