Independent centre of excellence

IMG_4020 lab team blog ''He's making a list, he's checking it twice, He's gonna find out who's naughty or nice...Santa Claus is coming to town...' The Birmingham Assay Office team must have been good this year as Santa Claus stopped by to pay them a visit! IMG_4022 blog His first stop was The Laboratory for a lunch time festive feast prepared by the staff, rumour has it he love's a good samosa! IMG_4032 His day wasn't over though as after a pre meal snooze he was soon wide awake and enjoying a sherry (well a couple of pints and a plate of chips!) with the AnchorCert Gemmological Laboratory and The Birmingham Assay Office Sales and Marketing team. His assistant, Secret Santa Sophie, handed out Secret Santa prezzies for all the good boys and girls. IMG_4025 One of the best prezzies had to be Marketing Manager Penny Parkes One Direction sticker book, look how thrilled she is with her present!!
