It might have been the hottest week of the year, but we struck lucky with slightly reduced temperatures for the annual GRM rounders match which was held at Shobnall Fields in our HQ town of Burton on Trent.
The eagerly anticipated and fiercely competitive event was once again well supported by GRM staff and their families. All were encouraged to get involved as teams were selected and the competition commenced. The reduced heat and involvement of children did little to quell the tension and, at times, aggression displayed by several senior GRM employees desperate to make the winners podium. Shame on them.
Food and drink was also high on the list of priorities, and the traditional ‘GRM Spread’ provided a welcome break from the battlefield bravado. The victorious claimed the bragging rights, and the losers were left to rue what could have been and plot their revenge for 2023.
