Aside from all the science we do in the Anderson lab, we're also quite a social bunch! We are a large group of diverse and interesting group members with a wide range of shared interests from baking to board games to football. Here's a sample of some of our more recent get togethers!
Our first retreat in two years was an excellent one! Filled with riveting talks, challenging team-building tasks, frantically cooked meals, all sorts of sports and a splash of hot-tub karaoke that went into the early hours... Until the next one!
Nikos departs the group and despite our long-planned efforts to have a punting and BBQ social we were thwarted by weather and ended up in a restaurant last minute. Still had a great time saying goodbye to Nikos and hopefully there's still time in the year to do the punt + BBQ!
Several team members were leaving with a few months of one another so we decided to have a joint celebration of their time in the group! All were fantastic team members who will be dearly missed by us all!
After lots of Omicron related delays we finally exchanged and opened our secret santa gifts! Merry February!
Some group members did a joint bake-off with the Parts group. Baking was tied to elimination in the TV show - here are a few of the cakes we remembered to photograph!
Our team away day at Madingley hall was followed by a delicious meal at the nearby Three Horseshoes
We met up for an evening of food and board games at the Salisbury Arms to wish Menna the best during her Maternity leave
