Once again NEPOMAK UK held a team-building weekend for our committee members and this year’s NDCP and NCCT participants in the rural hills of Newport, Wales on 14-16 September 2018.
The weekend away which took place in the rustic rural setting of Wales welcomed NEPOMAK UK once again to the ultimate destination to enjoy team-building weekend of workshops, dancing, food and fun. The period cottage with a countryside backdrop was the perfect place to discuss key initiatives with organisation members looking towards the upcoming year.
NEPOMAK have members from all over the UK, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Wales, Essex and further, who all gathered to regroup after a busy summer in Cyprus. This was a great opportunity for friends to reunite and spend quality time together whilst exploring new and innovative ways to reach out to the Cypriot diaspora and create more exciting events for the new year.
The workshops which attendees held produced frameworks for several events which they have taken beyond the weekend away and are putting into effect. These include the upcoming Bouzoukia Event being held on the 2nd November 2018 (see details below), as well as our hugely successful Santa Shoe Box Campaign which is set to run once more during the Christmas period. Additionally, we discussed a potential networking/educational event to take place in the New Year. Overall, our creative ideas were discussed and initiatives were put in place to ensure another successful year for the organisation.
Attendees also had the opportunity to cook traditional Cypriot dishes such as spanakopita, makaronia tou fournou and souvlakia. A traditional dance lesson was also held and now attendees can show off their newly honed moves during any zembekiko circle!
In summary, the team-building weekend was once again a massive success and we are under no doubt that it will be the same next year.
