Summer Fete 2015

With over 35 stalls, free Pimms and musical entertainment from Coco Vega and his Salsa Band, the Quorum Summer Fete went off with a bang!

Some of the biggest names on the street food scene attended – with The Fat Hippo, Zapatistas and Monsieur Crepe in attendance along with some smaller stalls including La Casa de Quesadilla – which was actually ran by a member of staff from Ebiquity, raising money for the Nepal Relief Fund.

The hub also hosted a Pimms stall, with free Pimms and non-alcoholic cocktails offered to all staff. There were also food stalls by Quorum regulars, Wildon Grange, Laceys Cheese, Kenspeckle Fudge and many more.

Fresh from entertaining the crowds at our recent Cinco de Mayo event with his mariachi band, Coco Vega provided musical entertainment with his Salsa Band – this went down well with staff and stall holders alike with some dancing on the grass too!

Events Manager, Laura Barber was thrilled with the day. ‘We were overwhelmed with the numbers that came along – we had a fantastic selection of stalls and the weather was fabulous – a fantastic combination which was greatly enjoyed by all attendees. We are estimating that over 1000 people came along on the day. We’re over the moon and can’t wait to start planning the Christmas Market for later this year!

Carers Event takes place at Quorum

Barclay’s Workplace Banking and Quorum Hub joined forces to host a Carers Forum in early June.

Representatives from Newcastle Citizens Advice Bureau, Carers Association, Mental Health Concerns, Age UK and Relative Experience were all on hand offering help and support to carers who work within Quorum

Barclays also offered advice on support on the different options when faced with supporting a family member or friend with money and day to day banking

The event was held at the Quorum Retail over lunch time, refreshments were provided along with various goody bags and info packs. Barclays Community Manager, Jan Prater was delighted with the turn out ‘we realized that the people who most need help and advice about being a carer are those with the least amount of time available to them – by hosting this event within the business park we are bringing much need help straight to them’

Events Manager, Laura Barber said ‘it’s great to see that we’ve also had visits from HR Representatives from across the park – this is the first step in coordinating a park wide support network for carer working within Quorum’
