Last week, the Easter Bunny made a visit to WAA so that the much-anticipated annual Easter Egg Hunt could get underway.
With assistance from the Entertainments Team, the Easter Bunny hid a delicious array of chocolatey goodies around the WAA offices for the staff to find - and subsequently scoff.
Raffle tickets had also been sold throughout the week to raise funds for the WAA Foundation; the prizes up for grabs being a hamper full of Easter-themed treats and a bottle of bubbly. Congratulations to Technical Team Leader Andy Swinburne, who took home the fizz, and Mandy Frearson on the Creative team, who won the big basket of choccie.
The raffle ticket sales raised a generous £53.00 for the WAA Foundation, so a big thank you to everyone who entered the draw, and - of course - to the Easter Bunny and his team of assistants for making this year’s Easter Egg Hunt an egg-cellent one!
On 25th April, figures released by the Office for National Statistics showed that Britain’s sluggish economy experienced negative growth for the second quarter in a row. By definition this now means we are experiencing a double-dip recession - the first since 1975 - and the worst economic period during the last 100 years.
Today, I broke the 50-point barrier on Klout.
