Friday 2nd December saw host to what could well become the annual ‘festive season opener’, and the place to be for Bromley business owners. Brownhill Insurance Group & Bounce Life entertained a merry crowd of over 70 guests on East Street, Bromley for a three-course lunch at Aqua Bar & Grill. With friends, colleagues and acquaintances giving up their Friday afternoons, expectations were running high for the arrival of Olympic ski jumping hero – Eddie the Eagle; as guest speaker.
Watch our 1 minute promo video below or the full 30 minute video at the bottom of this post.
Guests flooded in from 12pm and after an hour of networking with new and familiar faces, it was almost time to eat. Everyone took their seats and Ashley Reading from Bounce Life welcomed the room and quickly had everybody back on their feet again for a game of ‘Heads and Tails’. Based on the life of guest speaker Eddie The Eagle, there were 6 rounds of questions before 6 finalists were brought to the front and a winner found. Congratulations to Patsy Appleton for winning a meal for two at Aqua.
Compliments must be given to the chef and the staff at Aqua for delivery of over 70 beautiful meals all at once. From starter to dessert there was praise from all around the room.
After the main course had been consumed and washed down with water and/or wine, Ashley again took the microphone to introduce Eddie the Eagle for his guest speaker spot. Delivering on expectation, the jolly and at times comical Eddie entertained the room with his enthusiastic stories of adventure. He wrapped up with a Q&A of which there were many questions.
Although the event officially ended at 4pm, many were still there at 6pm including Eddie who was very obliging for posing for photographs and signing autographs. We can honestly say that he is the most genuine and kind man who always had a smile on his face. If you have not seen his film then we would thoroughly recommend it. (Trailer below)
It was a great event and one aimed at bringing our business community together including the lovely Deputy Mayor of Bromley, Hannah Gray.
Gillian from Brownhill Insurance Group & Ashley of Bounce Life would personally like to thank everyone that attended; it was a truly fantastic afternoon. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Best wishes for the season and we look forward to seeing you in the new year.
