4. Do some good with a spot of volunteering
For something a bit different, you could work as a team volunteering. Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council has corporate volunteering opportunities helping look after green spaces. It can be a great way of getting staff involved, as well as doing something good for the environment. Businesses can get in touch with the Rangers team to book work parties by emailing WildlifeConservation@basingstoke.gov.uk.
5. Be inspired by a beautiful venue
Why not hire a lovely space and organise your own event? Whether you are looking to do some team building activities or just an inspiring place to get out of the office, catch up and plan you’ll find somewhere in Basingstoke and Deane that meets the bill!
