Thanks to the HASSRA grant we managed to hold a Murder Mystery event!

Due to some staff having to isolate and work from home we could not hold our usual Newbury get-togethers. The local HASSRA Team decided that we needed to do something that would involve all the members, including those at home, so it was decided that we would hold a Virtual Christmas Murder Mystery. It turned out to be a fantastic day and everyone dressed up the best they could – using whatever they had around the house and going online shopping for the finishing touches – and some brilliant costumes were seen!!! We had to solve the “WHO DUNNIT” throughout the day, which included ‘Teams’ videos of the dead victim and question and answer sessions with all the suspects.

The event was won by our resident Miss Marple, Bev, who won a £10 Amazon Voucher. There was also a £10 Amazon Voucher prize for best dressed which was won by Tina. A brilliant effort by Team Newbury who, in between video sessions, were still phoning claimants and working. The day was rounded off by individual Cream Tea Goody bags which included tea and coffee, scones, clotted cream and jam and of course mince pies and either a travel mug and key ring or a water bottle and Keyring and we even did a special bag for our vegan colleague!
