“Arrrr me hearties!” This year we had a lot of fun with our pirate-themed float in the Kumeu and Helensville Christmas parades held on 2nd and 3rd December respectively. Our float was a pirate ship extravaganza with a pirate (naturally), cannons, treasure chest, barrels… and with the good sports from the Kumeu and Helensville offices walking alongside handing out literally hundreds of lollipops.
On Thursday 8th December our offices exploded with Christmas creativity for the Christmas Hub Decorating Competition. Each hub was given just two hours to decorate in a theme of their choice in a bid to win the coveted title of ‘Best Christmas Hub’. Once again, competition was fierce as the offices erupted with tinsel, snow, fairy lights, Santas, reindeer, trees, stars, stockings, carols… Congratulations to the Kumeu office with their winning nativity entry!
