Last Thursday evening we had a get together via Microsoft Teams for the PSGS (virtual) summer fete. We had hampers delivered by Charli's Treats with bunting to hang, drinks and nibbles for everyone in our household and a grand opening by Mayor Wayne Phelan. Then, the games began!
We had a PSGS bake off competition where everyone submitted photos of their sweet treats. We got so many great entries, but Kathy Trusler and Clare Owen took the lead as joint star bakers with an impressive summer fruits cake and NHS rainbow cake.
We went around the households and voted for the best hat competition, which Jill Durrant won with her cat hat made with some of her cat’s favourite food packaging amongst other bits and bobs.
Next came ‘PSGS you’ve been framed’ consisting of a compilation of videos our team recorded with a summer fete/lockdown theme. In third place we had Lisa Turner with a carpool karaoke, second place was Chris Hayes talking PPF with his cat and why he hates emojis and our winner was James Duggan's ‘A grand day in lockdown' video.
We ended with some bingo fun with Mayor Wayne the bingo caller. He came up with some ‘imaginative’ pension bingo phrases like “number 3, GMP”, “29, actuarial time” and “33, AVC”.
Thank you to our wonderful and wacky team who attended the (virtual) summer fete. It was great to see you all with your loved ones smiling and laughing. We hope you had an enjoyable evening and we look forward to catching up properly when we’re back in the office.
