Last Thursday, you may have noticed a dearth of relationship managers and delivery managers on the 4th floor. It was probably quieter. There was probably more room in the fridge. It was because we were on staycation!
Our day’s volunteering in London Fields with Parks staff saw us renovating benches, attacking weeds, creating loggeries, planting trees… pressing the button on the tail lift. All whilst learning more about each other and bonding over a shared hatred of thistles.
The day was such a success that Parks is now thinking about starting an in-house programme of team-building. Who knows, instead of Let’s Network [in a coffee shop] Let’s Network Parks could be coming to a green space near you.
