Annual staff away day  

An important part of working at CGT is our annual away day. It gives the team a chance to step outside their day-to-day responsibilities and connect with each other, especially those they might not usually work or spend time with.  

This year’s annual trip took us to the beautiful city of York, built on an incredible 2000 years of history. The team enjoyed soaking up the atmosphere walking around the city streets. This included the stunning York Minster and ambling down one of York’s most famous streets – the Shambles, the famous inspiration for the Harry Potter films.  

We couldn’t leave without stopping to see Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate, the shortest street in the city. Dating back to 1505, it seems to mean “neither-one-thing-nor-the-other street”, although a plaque on the end of the parish hall suggests the meaning “what a street!”  

Fuelled by an amazing lunch, we completed our tour with a visit to St Andrew’s Evangelical Church before catching the train home. 

We give thanks to the whole team for making it such a special day.
