What. A. Summer!
It has been full on, we have been busy, busy, busy… What with holiday season, all our corporate events and the work load and pace gaining momentum! First thing we must say is a huge thank to all of you that showed up for any of our events; our corporate football tournament with Countryside and Weston homes, along with Barratts tournament. Each of them was a huge success! We also had the cricket match and soon to have our Winter Golf day. It really does go along way with both Wayne and Nick and our clients! Just look at Nick’s face to see how happy he was at winning! If anyone would like to attend our golf day next Saturday (21st Sept), just let Robin know.
As we move into the Autumn, a lot of people have been asking how much holiday is needed for Christmas and how much you may have left. This information is with each of your individual supervisors.

Our Christmas drink will be on the last day as usual, details of where will be sent out in the next newsletter.
