Last month we rolled up our sleeves and gave the building its annual clean. The idea is to reach the parts that we don’t expect to be touched by the person who comes to clean here for a couple of hours every week. These parts include the front and back courtyards, awkward spots in the atrium space, and, most spectacularly, the glass top to the atrium. The afternoon session was rounded off at a drinks party in the Bull & Gate, convened to celebrate the engagement of Ben and his partner Sophie.
