2019 summer outing
Our summer 'beano' was reintroduced in 2012 with a company visit to the London Olympics to watch basket ball at Earl’s Court . Now it's less of a 'beano' and more of an educational trip and we have generally focused on visiting interesting buildings and other parts of London; Greenwich , Hampton Court , historic City pubs , Tower of London, The Design Museum and The Serpentine Gallery.
