Collaborative Business Development staff undertake charity Moon Walk challenge
Employees from our tenant, Collaborative Business Development, have been busy taking on a massive challenge to raise money for children's respite charity, Charlie House.
Since the beginning of June, Collaborative BD's managing director, Chris Robinson, and business development manager, Sean Gordon, have been undertaking their own Moon Walk challenge to raise vital funds for children living with complex disabilities and life-limiting conditions in the North-east.
They plan to walk, run, swim, cycle and row the entire circumference of the moon, 10,921km (6,785 miles), by the 31st of December. So far, they have completed 4,810km and have "just" 6,111km to go, averaging an impressive total of 54km per day.
Waterloo Quay recently donated two exercise bikes to Chris and Sean, to help them cover some of the immense distance in their own homes. The pair have also been using the equipment in the Quay Fitness gym, so make sure to give them some encouragement next time you're in!
To support Chris and Sean, please visit their Virgin Money Giving page at: http://bit.ly/2tdFVZS

Also new on site are global shipping navigation specialists, Global Navigation Solutions (GNS). The company, which provide vessels and owners around the world with comprehensive data and information on everything from real-time position reports and expenditure analysis through to weather charts, has moved into Ocean Spirit House.
Barrie Wilson, Head of IT Development at the company said: "Moving to Waterloo Quay provides a better working environment for staff and puts GNS on the quayside close to vessels in the port of Aberdeen.
The staff at Waterloo Quay properties have ensured that all aspects of the office move was as smooth as possible and we thank them for their continued support."

Quay Fitness Under New Management
Squash Court Conversion Now Complete
We are pleased to advise that we have agreed a five-year licence to operate Quay Fitness gym, squash court and table tennis facilities with Jamie Ballantyne of LFL Fitness Personal Training!
You will therefore see Jamie's friendly face a lot more onsite as his licence is effective immediately. Jamie is always looking for ways to improve the scope of services offered at Quay Fitness, therefore if you have ideas about what you would like to see in terms of equipment and services offered by LFL Fitness, then please do not hesitate to share your thoughts with him.
For our current Quay Fitness members, there will be no adverse effect on your use of the facilities, although there are a few small changes being introduced which we hope will enhance the usability and enjoyment of the facilities available, including the conversion of one of the squash courts which has now been completed. The new area has been transformed into a dedicated weights and fitness room, with various pieces of new equipment and a matted area to offer some interesting alternative solutions for personal strength and conditioning.
Squash Court Bookings For Members
If you wish to use the squash court we would encourage pre-booking. Please contact Provender reception at email@example.com or call 01224 565000.
Closed Facebook Group
We are always looking into more beneficial ways to communicate with our tenants and members to keep you up-to-date on both major and minor work activity at Waterloo Quay, or on-going works within the buildings. We have found that although email is the most beneficial method for business communications, it isn't always as timely as hoped. We have therefore created a closed Facebook group for all our tenants and Quay Life members to keep you up-to-date with our activities.
If you haven't already received an invitation to join this group, please click the image above and you will be directed to the group. We also welcome your feedback on WQP or any recommendations you may have for our fast growing business community so please feel free to post these in the group.
We want to hear from you!
We love to shout about what is happening with our tenants and members at Waterloo Quay community! Therefore if you would like the opportunity to feature in our next newsletter, please get in contact with Carolynne Riley firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have a news section on our website which includes our news, tenant news, special features and events, which we'd love to feature you on!

Closed LinkedIn Group Coming Soon!
After receiving feedback from tenants we've decided to launch the Waterloo Quay closed group on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a platform many of us use for business purposes and as such is the perfect place for a closed group online where we can share information about site developments and network with one another.
We're currently in the process of setting this up and will be e-mailing out the link to join the group shortly.
