Give Your Staff a Pizza Day

The second 'Give your Staff a Pizza Day' has been a real success with grooms and their employers enjoying a well earned pizza for lunch or supper! 

The idea of the initative from the Equestrian Employers Association is to celebrate the hard work of the equestrian workforce, and to inspire a simple team building treat! 

All types of yards have got involved, from livery yards to riding schools, studs and three of our top Olympians - Piggy French, Nick Skelton, Carl Hester and Charlotte Dujardin. 

Everyone loves a pizza! 

A small thank you goes a long way and we are delighted once again to be supporting 'Give Your Staff a Pizza Day'. My team play a very important part in everything we achieve and they deserved to be recognised for all of the effort that they put in.

Enjoying a pizza together also gives time away from the yard to sit down and be social, which is more important than ever at the moment. I hope employers and their teams enjoyed a pizza together.
