The whole team was treated to a day out on the 58ft boat, Bianca Lucida, courtesy of Hamble Power Boat Charters. We started with a gentle meander down the River Hamble, followed by a trip out to the Isle of Wight – the first stop being the Needles.
We were very lucky with some decent weather in the morning (considering it was forecast to rain all day) and were treated to some great views of the Needles and the boats taking part in Cowes week.
Our next stop was for lunch at The Hut in Colwell Bay. A rib came and picked us up to take us to the restaurant, and we had some amazing fresh food – prawns, octopus, vegetarian gnocchi, and steak just to name a few of the incredible dishes! This was obviously accompanied by some delicious cocktails – and the weather cleared enough to give us picturesque views.
Back onto the boat for the afternoon, we celebrated in style, opening up the champagne and listening to some brilliant (if somewhat varied!) music.
We stopped in Newtown Creek, as the more adventurous of us wanted a swim – only Zoe and Simon were brave enough to jump in!
Before we knew it, we were heading back into the River Hamble, and moored up just after 6pm, ready for a few last drinks, then home.
It really was an incredible day. The opportunity to socialise properly again – something most of us haven’t done in well over a year – and to be thankful that things were truly looking up again.
Mexa Solutions, like many other businesses, has battled through and is now overcoming the effects of the pandemic. We’re grateful that business is busier than ever, and that we can work to help those who have been hugely impacted, get back into work or take that next amazing step in their career.
It does also mean we’re looking to grow our own team here at the Whiteley offices. We have positions for both experienced recruiters and also resource consultants. So if you’re thinking of a change, and you like the idea of joining us on our next social, do get in touch.
