Just Fun

  • British Hardwoods Foray Into Football

    British Hardwoods are delighted to announce a sponsorship link up with local football team Silsden Rams under-9’s. The youngsters will proudly wear their red and black strip with the British Hardwoods logo on the front. The link transpired through Sam Fearnley, the son of British Hardwoods head of production Jason.  With the team in need of a kit supplier, Sam asked his Dad if British Hardwoods would be willing to help. Managing director Tony Fillingham felt it would be a great opportunity to help out a local club as well as promoting British Hardwoods in the area.

    The Rams play in the Keybury under 9’s league with the majority of their games on Saturdays and Sundays, as well training once a week. We would like to wish Silsden Rams Under 9’s all the best for the coming season. Just try not to outgrow your new kits too quickly!

     

  • Paintballing Fun For British Hardwoods' Production Team

    Many of the British Hardwoods team recently took part in a team-building paintballing trip at nearby Steeton Paintballing. The majority of the production team and Jamie from the office couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to inflict pain upon their fellow colleagues! In the rough terrain woodland area the boys were split into two teams and given game scenarios that involved ultimately invading opposition bases without being hit by the painful paintballs.

    Once hit, the players left the game and the team with the last man standing were crowned winners. Red team won four games to nil overall, with the impressive Danny taking many of their casualties. The losing yellow team will point to the unequal team numbers as an excuse for their poor showing! Photography enthusiast Neil filmed much of the battle on a head-cam which provided some good laughs when viewed in slow motion. Great fun was had by all on a warm spring evening with many of the lads nursing all kinds of bruises and injuries come Monday morning!

    It was very nearly a double victory for Tony who was only one point away from winning the Men's Singles tournament too! It's not often that we see Tony in his shorts - what a grand pair (of trophies!). Congratulations to them both on their well-deserved win.
