The office continues to expand
Last month we doubled the floor space in the office by taking over
space from a neighbouring company. At last there was enough space
to have a stretch without risking hitting someone in the eye! I
exaggerate, but we all agree that the extra space has been needed
for some time.
Almost as soon as the partitions were moved and the new desks installed
new people have moved in to fill the space. In July we welcomed
Hannah Vernon to help with the intensive Wider
Implications of Science and Technology (WIST) project. Hannah gained
her degree in 2004 and since then has been working in Accra, Ghana
co-ordinating a programme of volunteering across the region, so
her organisational skills will be very useful to us.
We are also delighted to welcome back Sarah Alder
after a spell back home in Australia. The other project managers
have been groaning under the weight of her workload while she has
been away, so her return is welcome indeed!
