Staff at a Derbyshire-based sweet company were having a ball last week - literally!

Swizzels, makers of Love Hearts, Drumsticks, Refreshers and more, installed a giant adult ball pool at its New Mills factory to help staff unwind during their breaks.

The ball pool, which holds over 25,000 balls, was located in the staff canteen as part of National Stress Awareness Month and also helped to launch the company’s new Drumstick and Refreshers Bon Bons range.

Jeremy Dee, Managing Director at Swizzels, said: “Our new Bon Bons range is a modern twist on the traditional childhood classics and to celebrate this we wanted to create some childlike fun for our employees.

“We know how important it is for people to take time out and unwind in today’s hectic society and we hope our new nostalgic range will help people do this.”
