Returning to 'Normal'

Posted: May 07, 2020

Since April, for many of us our offices have been our homes and our daily commutes are non-existent. With changes in the horizon to the lockdown and the social distancing guidelines, it is time to start thinking about a ‘new normal’ within the workplace.

We can happily tick the box on another memorable Christmas party.

This year, we kept it more local than previous years, and reserved our place at the Roman Baths for our 2017 office Christmas party.

On Friday, we continued our tradition and travelled down to Bath in full fancy-dress attire – this year’s theme, Movies.  

Everyone put in a huge amount effort with their costumes, and we saw outfits like; Pink Ladies from Grease, Wilson the ball from Castaway, The Mask, Mary Poppins and many more.
