A Journey To Work

Many of our team work off site however our sales team make a boring journey interesting everyday when they come to the office.
Their journey starts off with a brisk walk through scarborough town to the train station to board the train and see all the other people waiting to set off to work, giving them an acknowledging nod knowing the fate of their fellow passengers having to go to work in a job they do not particularly enjoy while our sales team looks forward to a day of work and interacting with their customers.

As the train pulls out of the station our sales team get a last look at Scarborough; at least for now. Once past seamer they look out of the window to see, luscious green fields and wildlife ranging for magpies to deer.
Throughout the journey they notice many different and interesting things. Though many of the fields are full of horses they do get a lovely surprise when spring rolls round and it turn to lambing season where they get to see all the lambs frolicking through the fields.

On their journey our sales team go through a variety of different areas, for example as the train enter into the proximity of Filey, it goes from lush fields and farm houses to small streets of houses, and allotments to busy main roads and big supermarket chains.

We arrive in the heart of Filey for a brisk minute then set of to Hunmanby which is a short five minutes from Filey. However it feels like an entirely different continent, the weather is consistently so contrasting to scarborough; the rainy days at home are sunny days at work, gusty days turn to the hint of a breeze. But no matter what weather it is each day, in either Scarborough or Hunmanby there is still a twenty minute walk to the station and then another twenty minute walk from the station on the other side.
As they exit the train at Hunmanby usually with a casual good bye to the ever friendly train conductors our sales team start their usual route through Hunmanby. After waiting at the train crossing our sales team begins their twenty minute wander to work. With roads one side of the path and houses and fields full of flowers on the other side, when the sun shines the colours come to life illuminating their surroundings in rays of colour.

Saying passing hellos to the villagers out walking their dogs, they wind their way through the quiet streets of Hunmanby. Occasionally popping into the local shop for a refreshing drink for the hard days work ahead. As they near work passing the local garage the owners dog normally comes bounding out for its morning strokes and a bit of fussing over before letting our sales team wander on their way.
Once turning the corner onto Sheepdyke lane where their workplace is situated they past the old jail cells and come to two big wooden gates through which they enter the office grounds, noticing whose cars are parked in the driveway so they know who is at work, to start they day of helping customers and processing orders.
