Quarterly prize - a day at the cricket

Following Nick's hard work during the first quarter of the year, he was awarded the first prize of 2016 - 4 tickets to England v Pakistan at Lords. 

Yesterday Nick, along with 3 friends, attended Lords to watch the fourth day of the the first test. Extremely lucky with the sunshine, but not so lucky with the result; Pakistan won by 75 runs. However a great day was had by them all. 

A well deserved prize!

An innovative US restaurant brand which promises personalised pizzas in under three minutes is now open in Bromley.

Award-winning Project Pie’s second British outlet opened in Intu Bromley shopping centre late last week offering diners 30 toppings to choose from and a no limit policy so they can design their own dinner for a set price.

The bases and sauce are made on site before the finished pizzas are cooked in a 600 degree oven.

Project Pie’s UK director Susan Canavan reportedly commented: “We always aim to fit in with the community and bring a different style and flavour to each of our stores. However our approach remains the same: offering delicious and totally personalised pizza that is ready in under three minutes and at a great price.”

The restaurant is open on the new restaurant terrace, which also includes Wagamama, Giraffe, Ed’s Diner and Byron.
