Xtreme Summer Fun at Chiswick Business Park
Action packed demonstrations at local office complex
Chiswick Business Park’s lunchtime summer events season has kicked off in true style with the aptly named Xtreme Summer; an action-packed demonstration designed to introduce people on the business park to the skills of world championship BMX and in-line skating, with its tricks, flips and daredevil manoeuvres.
Guests based at the park, as well as visitors from within the wider local community, soaked up the atmosphere and marvelled at the 8 world champions as they displayed a range of half pipe stunts and ground level free-landing moves. A 15 piece steel band, themselves from the local community, contributed to the carnival atmosphere with a lively backdrop of music, whilst a BBQ provided lunch and refreshments for a steady stream of hungry visitors.
Now in its fourth year the summer events season, which runs from June until September on the Events Square at the park, has proved to be a resounding success. Forming a key part of Chiswick Business Park’s enjoy-work lifestyle ethos, the events offer the opportunity for participants to try a number of new experiences and gain valuable skills.
As well as introducing an element of summer-time fun into Friday lunchtimes, the activities also have a more serious role in encouraging team-building and motivation in the workplace, helping to create a sense of community across the park and among neighbouring residents and businesses.
Sarah Green, from Chiswick Park Enjoy-Work, said, “Our summer events programme is now a well-established tradition at Chiswick Park, and one that we all look forward to with great anticipation. Xtreme Summer was a brilliant way to start the season and I’m delighted that so many visitors were able to join us. Today has set a precedent for the rest of the summer and there’s plenty to look forward to over the next 12 weeks.”
The event series will run every Friday between 12.00pm - 2.00pm until 9 September and are open both to employees based on the park and to local residents.
The next event will take place on Friday 10 June and will offer the opportunity to participate in a lifesize game of table football that looks set to feature in The Guinness Book of Records.
