It’s not all about work at Office Angels.  We like to enjoy ourselves from time to time, and also hear about news from our friends and clients, so here’s a couple of other recent happenings in our world.

10th Anniversary Promotion Winner!

Last year we ran a competition to celebrate our 10th anniversary, which was won by Sandie Farr.  The prize was an incredible one night stay at Falls Retreat for two people, an idyllic retreat set among native bush, with Owharoa Falls a short walk away and an award winning Bistro onsite. There was also a hamper on arrival in the cabin, plus a voucher for $100 to spend at the incredible bistro.  To top it off, a beautiful cooked breakfast delivered to the cabin in the morning.

Well, Sandie finally managed to get a break from the kids and had her night away.  She messaged us the other week with the following:

“Hi you amazing people – hubby and I absolutely loved our beautiful prize weekend getaway to Falls Retreat we won from you. It was a magical place with the most delicious food!! Thanks so so much.

We’re so pleased you had a great time Sandie, and quite envious!  Sandie was kind enough to share some photos too.

Keep an eye out for future giveaways.  We can’t promise they’ll all be as glamorous and romantic as the Falls Retreat, but it’s worth liking our Facebook page just in case!

Charity Golf Day

On the 13th of April, Ian took a day out of the office to represent Office Angels in the Blue Light Corporate Golf Day at Omanu Golf Club.  As a golfer of no significant ability, he pulled together a crack team of experienced players – well, two plus another of similar standard – to hack their way around the course.  Those of you familiar with the game will appreciate that under ambrose rules, the poorer players can be carried, so it’s forgiving to the lesser player.

Office Angels came in a highly impressive third out of 20 teams, thanks in no small part to Ian himself holing a 25 foot birdie putt (and the others, who may have had something to do with it).

It was a fantastic day, with the blustery conditions making the course even trickier but all the more enjoyable.  And, if you can play golf next to a train track and underneath planes taking off and landing at Tauranga airport, you can’t be all that bad!  Most importantly, it raised money for local youth programmes.  You can find out more about Blue Light here.
