Anglo Pacific Warehouse – Gone Fishing
Summer is flat-out silly season for Anglo Pacific’s warehouse team so, to reward their hard work and loyalty, the international removals company sent ten of them off for a day’s fishing on the south coast – with hilarious consequences.
Anglo Pacific’s HR Director, Liz Caines, explains, “We actually overheard the warehouse team discussing an upcoming fishing trip and decided we’d pick up the bill to thank them for their efforts in this busy period. I’m told that it was the quietest team-building event that they’d ever experienced with silent concentration on their own rods interspersed by the odd whoop of excitement when they landed a catch. Thankfully, the sea off the Brighton coastline was fairly flat and the team was able to enjoy a great day – with the drive home a particular highlight.”
Warehouse Manager, Phil Morris, who was on the trip, picks up the story, “Having caught, and cooked up, 35 fish, we made our way back to London by car. Interestingly, the usually reliable satnav directed us straight to Brighton’s legendary Pride Parade and we ended up driving at 2mph through the heart of it. I have never seen so many happy people, so scantily clad, without inhibition, doing and wearing stuff that would get you arrested in more conservative areas of the Pacific. Thankfully the police bent over backwards to help us, a bunch of stranded Fijian and Trinidadian warehouse workers, and we finally made it through the Parade safe and sound. A humorous way to end a fabulous day.”
Special mention should be given to Phil Morris and his family. Fijian by birth, the Morrises have been the stable core of Anglo Pacific’s warehouse workforce with many years loyal service to the company. Phil (Theophile) has been with the Company for almost 14 years and Mo (Vakacegu), Phil’s wife, the same. Jack, Phil’s brother, joined Anglo Pacific 13 years ago and cousin Richard, 11 years. There are six Morris brothers in total and over the years Anglo Pacific has employed all of them at one time or another. Phil and Jack also have six children apiece and several of their offspring have been on the Anglo Pacific payroll. Phil says, “We work well together, we don’t fall out often, but if we do, we get together at the weekend, roast a pig and have a few beers. All is soon forgotten.”
