Last Tuesday the OAE office resounded to the sounds of a drill and much shouting, often along the lines of ‘no, I told you it wouldn’t go there’, or ‘It says part A should slot into part C, but I can’t find part C!’. The reason was the assembly of our new table football table, a shared purchase with the London Sinfonietta, ready in time for our joint Christmas party the next day. After much driling, shouting and a couple of hours, Michael and Megan suceeded in putting the table up, and the table was immediately in use for a grudge match between the Chief Executives of each organisation!
