July 2020

Throughout lock down it was business as usual for Acanthus with us catching up on Zoom 3 times a week to check everyone was fit, healthy and coping in these strange times. It didn’t take long for them to become very sociable events with Fridays meeting shifting from early morning to late afternoon, allowing us to share a cheeky glass of wine whilst we quizzed, scavenge hunted and even recreated famous paintings!


July has seen the office re-open with a structured return to work. Whilst we still have people based at home the team have been keen to get “back to normal” with a core back in residence. Many of us are now cycling into the city centre resulting in an alarming amount of lycra appearing!
