Our long-standing Property Manager, Steph Durr, worked her last day before going off on maternity leave today. Her son, Frankie, is due to make an appearance on 17th May and we have been hugely impressed by how well Steph has worked throughout her pregnancy, showing her usual grit and determination.
To send her off, we all chipped in to buy some lovely gifts for the baby as well as playing games and throwing our own baby shower for her on Friday afternoon. Games included staff providing their own baby photos and Steph had to guess who was who, guessing the circumference of Steph's bump (in which Liam was victorious!) and estimating the baby's weight, due date, labour length and hair colour. Even our gas engineer, Stuart, made an appearance with a splash of aftershave and a clean shirt on!
Staff also got the opportunity to write Steph a short note of advice - most of which revolved around pain relief!
We all wish Steph the very best of luck and look forward to her returning to work.
