Our team had lots of great moments in 2021 – we hired 4 new apprentices, including 2 women and doubling our goal for Kawerau apprentices, won Master Plumber of the Year, had some great work whanau BBQs and catch-ups, and another year of growth. At our Christmas day out on a fishing charter, Daisylee snagged the biggest fish! These are just some of our best memories of the year.

But there’s no doubt that this moment was one of the highlights for all of us. 

At our annual team day out, we had an awesome activity lined up to build bikes from scratch! We built the bikes, helmets, and bike locks in teams with everything tested by mechanics on-site to ensure their safety.

The best part? All of the bikes went to local kids in need, organised through the Graeme Dingle Foundation. The bikes were personalised with the name of the child receiving the bike, and the looks on their faces were priceless! The kids came to collect their bikes and helmets, giving their new bikes a go before packing them in the van to bring home. One of them was even celebrating a birthday!  

We had a full snacking platter, with cold drinks and a BBQ to finish the day off. 

What an epic day for our team. It’s sure to be one we’ll remember forever. 

Thanks to Mountain Bike Rotorua and the Graeme Dingle Foundation for such an awesome team bonding experience. We’d highly recommend this as a rewarding experience for your staff!
