Euro 2016 Competition Winner Announced!


In the run up to Euro 2016, we gave our clients the chance to win an iPad by guessing the total number of goals scored by the overall winning team during the tournament.

Portugal lifted the trophy having scored 14 goals throughout their matches – including penalty shoot outs – and we went into a tie break situation!

Having been the person with the closest guess to our tie-breaker question, the overall winner was Jonny from Nottingham! Congratulations Jonny!

Our friends at Lincolnshire Sport are on the hunt again for Lincolnshire’s most active workplace!

As winners of the inaugural ‘Active Workplace of the Year Award’ at Lincolnshire Sport’s Award Ceremony in 2014, it gave our team a huge sense of pride and achievement. We still love being active together and taking part in as many sporting activities and events as possible – and our business is still reaping the many benefits this brings!

We’d now like to raise awareness of this accolade and encourage other businesses to nominate themselves! Nominations are open until this Friday 22 July and can be completed online by clicking here.

Whether it’s for involvement in charity events such as ‘It’s a Knockout’ type challenges, more serious sporting triumphs like running a marathon, or even if your company offer workplace incentives for health and fitness like a cycle to work scheme, we think you deserve recognition!

Second annual golf day is a success!


This Tuesday saw us host a day of golf at the beautiful setting of Blankney Golf Club for the second year running.

With entertainment from world-renowned ‘Tricky Rob’ and his trick shot golf show, footballing anecdotes from our after dinner speaker, ex-Chelsea and Ireland player Tony Cascarino, and excellent hospitality from the team at Blankney, the day proved a great success once again!
