National Waiters’ Day 2014

Posted on October 10, 2014

It’s not often we encourage our staff to run, but we were shouting support from the sidelines when we entered a team into the recent National Waiters’ Day race!

A brilliant initiative described by its founder Fred Sirieix as ‘A day to celebrate all Front of House staff and inspire people about careers in the hospitality industry’, National Waiters’ Day took place on 25th September and the highlight for us was The Waiters’ Race in London’s Hyde Park.

Javier from aqua spirit, Miguel from aqua nueva and aqua kyoto’s Ramesh teamed up with colleagues from our sister restaurants aqua shard and Hutong to enter the race, which saw them compete against dozens of industry peers to see who could complete the course in the fastest time without dropping anything from a tray laden with glasses.

While we didn’t win (although aqua shard’s Hattie only very narrowly missed out on the ‘Fastest Waitress’ crown!) we had great fun and hopefully helped in National Waiters’ Day’s aim of encouraging more people to consider hospitality as a career.
