As 2019 is fast approaching, we decided to take a look back at some of our most memorable social events that took place in Areaworks Hackney this year. We have had so many unforgettable times and it’s great to see our members forming great friendships. From pumpkin carving workshops, beer Fridays, quiz afternoons to ending the year with our big Christmas party, there was a lot going on for our members over the past number of months. We always love to hear from our members and find out what they would want to do, so we hold events that are personally suited to their interests to ensure that there is something for everyone to get involved in.
Without further ado, here is a summary of our in-house events hosted in Hackney 2018.
We thought it would be great fun for our members to down tools and take part in a quiz on a Thursday afternoon in the run up to Christmas! It was a great way for our members to wind down after a long day of work.
We spoilt our members with mince pies and mulled wine to get them in the festive spirit. This turned out to be lots of fun and laughter. Our winner Everest won a Christmas hamper filled with lots of festive treats.
Definitely a hit with our members and plenty more to come in the 2019!
One afternoon in the lead up to Halloween we gathered our members for some pumpkin carving fun. As we had so many new members join in October, this was a great way for people to get to know each other. It was also a nice break in the day for the members who took part, something different for them to do for the afternoon.
We supplied the materials for the workshop: pumpkins, carving kits and template designs. We left the members to supply the creativity!
Every Friday afternoon we gather all the members in our communal area for a couple of drinks, accompanied by music and games. This is a great way to meet more people and let loose after a hard-working week. And really there isn’t a downside – free beers and socialising. Winning!
Of course, we had to throw a Christmas party for our members to celebrate such a fantastic year! Lots of festive foods, crackers and drinks (no brainer) it turned out to be a really fun night for all involved.
It’s been a great year for our Hackney branch, since opening earlier this summer! It is clear that we have developed a great sociable community which is only going to get bigger and better with more members signing in the New Year. Here’s to many more fun times ahead in 2019.
If you are looking for somewhere to find that perfect work-laugh balance, then Areaworks Hackney is the place for you. Book a tour and we can show you around – who knows, you could be taking part in our 2019 events before you know it!
