Team-building for estate agents on an army assault course
It was a day out, with a difference, for staff from Palmer & Partners estate agents in Suffolk and Essex.
John Palmer, a keen fun-runner, took the staff for a day trip to the Nuclear Races, an army style assault course near Brentwood, Essex.
“It was a tough day, but very enjoyable,” said John, “We are all aching a bit the day after.”
The participants had to tackle the 3km course which included climbing sheer walls, scampering under cargo nets and jumping (or wading through) plenty of dirty ditches.
He said: “It was very different to a day in the office.
“We have had summer barbecues before, but nothing like this.
