Pizzas and mini golf for staff and their families

Posted on: 21 March 2018    

On Friday evening some of the Christchurch office staff and their families gathered at Magaret Mahy playground for a spot of mini golf. Despite the cold southerly, pizzas and soft drink went down well and while many of my shots were 5+, I managed not to lose too many balls in the undergrowth. Thanks Bridget and Mel for organising – the kids had a blast in the playground and we had to drag them away as the sun was going down. A repeat next summer is in order!

Paul Durdin's experience at the TRB conference in Washington, D.C.

Posted on: 12 January 2018    

Being a first time attendee at the Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual Meeting from 7-11 January 2018 in Washington, D.C. the first thing that strikes you, aside from the frigid temperatures of a northern hemisphere winter, is the sheer scale of this event.  The venue is an enormous 4-level conference centre that spans over two city blocks and includes a major hotel adjacent to the conference centre.  A facility of this scale is needed to accommodate the 13,000+ delegates attending the five day conference.

Abley v Interpret annual netball match

Posted on: 15 December 2017    

For the 2nd year in a row, the Hagley courts played host to the Abley versus Interpret netball match – and Christchurch put on a scorcher! It was a glorious day in the garden city, with temperatures hitting 33 degrees just before the teams took the court.  Taking this into account, the format of the game was changed from 2x 10min halves to 4x 5min quarters which allowed for plenty of drinks breaks!

Our "Abley Aces" are on a winning streak!

Posted on: 30 November 2017    

Our indoor cricket team, the "Abley Aces", is a great example of our people embracing our company's ‘Connected’ value. It provides an awesome opportunity for those who share a passion for cricket (and have some skills to boot) to socialise away from work and participate in a semi-social league.  It is also a fantastic way for new team members to get to know their colleagues better.
