Be in your Element

Virtual Palma Trip – May 2020

A nice reward for our efforts

Palma 2020 wasn’t quite as anticipated due to us being in lockdown, but it didn’t stop us from celebrating as a team.

Usually at this time of year we’d be in Palma for our staff conference, but this year we had to use our imagination and come up with a different way to mark the occasion.

 

Steph arranged for everyone to receive a special delivery from our very own 'Postman Steve' (whilst adhering to social distancing of course) containing some Spanish goodies as well as a few favourites to remind everyone of our Bristol office. 

Luckily the sun was shining and everyone made an effort to get into the party mood. 

   

We’d set the team as few challenges earlier in the week so we showed off our handiwork in the loo roll challenge….'make a character from an old loo roll tube'.

 

The Winner was Emma with an excellent Paddington Bear. I hadn’t realised what a talented and creative team we had!

 

Next up quizmaster Kate took over with a photo quiz she had arranged.

 

We particularly enjoyed guessing what fridge contents belonged to which person; it’s a lot harder than it sounds.

Some of the Element employees have some weird stuff in their fridge!!!

 

Can you recognise anyone in these baby photos????

 

While we all had a great couple of hours catching up and being silly, we are all looking forward to the future when life will return to a new normal and we can all be together again. It was very clear from the laughter and banter that we’re a close team and we miss not spending time in each other’s company. 

 

While there remained differences on opinion on what should be kept in a fridge and what should be kept in a cupboard ... we all agreed that future trips away are going to be huge!
