Spring on the River

Finally the rain has seemingly stopped and the relentless down pours seem to be waining! The Marina is a hive of activity at the moment with a lot of boat maintenance as well as a new restaurant opening soon. 

Alliants held another of our bi annual meetings yesterday and the sun was out and spring was definitely in the air. It was a good opportunity to get together and discuss what we have all been doing and the direction that the company has moved in in the 6 months since our last proper meeting. In summary, business is good and we are working on some exciting products and with some very cool clients so there are exciting times ahead. 

As usual, after the important stuff, we were able to spend some time together doing something fun - We arranged laser clay pigeon shooting in a clearing behind the marina and all stomped off adorning sensible shoes to have a go! The new dart board in the office has improved some peoples aim. It was a lot of fun and brought us all together outside of work and reminded most of us, that we really like spending time together whether in a social or work capacity.

All that shooting gave us an appetite so back to the office for one of Dan Hubbard's barbecues - more sausages, cheese burgers and chicken wings than you can shake a stick at. The first of many barbecues that we intend to host this year. 
As we all stood outside chatting and laughing I was able to really reflect on how what a great environment we have at Alliants, coming together for beers and burgers on the river as the sun goes down - we feel that we are in a pretty privileged position.
