Shireburn Staff Summer Event 2017

The much anticipated Shireburn Summer Event was held last weekend and, as has been tradition over the past 30+ years, Shireburn invited all employees and their families to join us for a day by the pool and dinner.

So with bags packed, armed with hats and sun cream, off we went to enjoy this annual day together!

And after months of preparation and planning by Shireburn’s Social Committee, it was time to sit and chill, enjoy some good food, and relax with colleagues and family.

After all, this growing team of 47 has achieved some remarkable milestones over recent months, so it was time for some sun and fun.

Shireburn Bake Sale for a Good Cause

After a week of enthusiastic menu planning, the day finally arrived for Shireburn staff to bring homemade sweet and savory goodies to work, baked by themselves.

Bake Sale 2017 - 1We’ve been lucky enough to be introduced to a very special little boy, currently awaiting a heart transplant overseas. All proceeds from this bake sale will be going towards helping him and his family to get through this very difficult time. We send out our love to this courageous boy and his family and wish them a speedy return back home!

The variety at this year’s bake sale proved that Shireburn’s team are not only great at all that is tech, but they’re also masters in the kitchen! The yummy delights ranged from Peanut Butter Cake to Cinnamon Roll Cookies, Bolognese and Salami Stromboli and Cheese Muffins just to name a few.

Bake Sale 2017 - 2A huge well done to all the staff who dedicated their time to baking these treats, and an even bigger well done to all those who bought these goodies, enabling us to raise funds for a super good cause.


Shireburn Staff Sicily Trip 2017

Catania 2017
Catania, Sicily

Shireburn Software treated its team to a one-day road trip in Sicily, last Saturday 17th July.

The growing team of 47 has achieved some remarkable milestones over recent months, so it was time for a rewarding team-building trip.

The plan: A full day of sightseeing, good food and wine, and lots of laughter, the Sicilian way.

The day started off as early as 5:50am, with a flight to Catania.

Once our feet were on the ground, we kicked off with a typical Sicilian breakfast consisting of coffee and croissants in the main square of Catania.

Next, we headed to the baroque city of Noto and after a brief talk about its history by our tour guide, we indulged in some local granita and brioche.

For lunch, the group visited the famous Planeta Winery for a tour around the winery and its vineyards, and a wine tasting session, accompanied by an amazing buffet of typical Sicilian food. The team got to enjoy an outdoor lunch in the picturesque Sicilian countryside.

Siracusa was next on the list, with visits to the Greek theatre and Ortigia island.

The day finished off with a boat tour around the harbour at sunset, accompanied by a typical ‘aperitivo’ on board.
