Benchmark clinch victory…

We’re delighted to announce that Benchmark took the trophy AGAIN with a resounding cricket win this weekend against the Conran team. Benchmark ended with 153 runs against Conran’s  115 – winning for the third year in a row.

Around two hundred and fifty Conran and Benchmark employees and their families spent a delightful afternoon at Barton Court for what has become a biennial event.   It was a  charming and quintessentially English afternoon –  a marquee strung with bunting, trestle tables laden  with jugs of fresh flowers from the garden, huge knuckles of ham, truckles of cheese, homemade pork pies and quiches served with  hunks of bread and homemade pickles & chutnies. Children and dogs ran wild, croquet was played on the lawn, some braved the swimming pool whilst others took a gentle stroll around the wonderful grounds and walled garden or lazed in the sunshine (until it poured down!)…  A perfectly relaxed afternoon rounded off with a cricket tea of cream scones and homemade cakes.
