As well as National Women’s Day, Mothering Sunday, St Patrick’s Day and Easter (this year), March heralds an end to bleak winter days and promotes a healthier, happier way of living:

Nutrition and Hydration Week aims to highlight, promote and celebrate improvements in the provision of nutrition and hydration locally, nationally and globally.  To sample many different kinds of cuisine from across the world, all in one place, Croydon’s Box Park has everything all under one roof, where many of the units are start-up businesses with their first catering outlet.  At Weatherill House we use local companies such as Jasper’s and Katherine Ann Catering  due to the fantastic food quality and reliability – both companies are able to cater for a range of different dietary needs.

Sports Relief – where the British public comes together for a week of activity, raising money to tackle critical issues affecting people across the UK and the world.  Croydon has an abundance of sports facilities, all within easy reach of the town centre.  There are 5 Public Leisure Centres to choose from as well as many private ones, such as Nuffield Health and Wellbeing .  Go to MyPTStudio for a more bespoke service (and sports therapy), or Dynamo Personal Training that also offers superb boxing facilities. Public tennis courts, football fields and bowling greens are available at Lloyd Park.  And trampolining is available at Oxygen or there’s a weekly dance class for adults at Modern Jive Surrey

National Conversation Week – encouraging everyone in the UK to spend the week trying a little bit harder to engage with those around them be they a friend, family member, colleague or customer.  Why not try the Ikea Big Breakfast meeting on Thursday 22nd March for a truly memorable speed-networking experience.  StartUp Croydon also hosts several networking events each month at our business enterprise centre on the Purley Way, click here for more details.

Is the “First Day of Spring” and Croydon Parks will be blooming.  With around 120 to choose from, there’s a green space available wherever you work or live.  Our very own Wandle Park is located opposite our Head Office at Weatherhill House and is yet another advantage to our tenants who rent affordable office space within the building.
