Happy Halloween

This October, our Ravens did Halloween a little differently ๐ŸŽƒ

We challenged them to be inventive in carving pumpkins, squash, aubergines and there was even a coconut somewhere in there....

Scrum

This year, our social events have taken a crazy turn. With the usual newbie night not being possible, we had to take a different approach.

We challenged our Ravens to carve whatever they could find in the supermarket (preferably pumpkins).

We know they're a creative bunch, but we didn't really anticipate seeing them using drills and soldering irons. But you know what they say... "when in home!"

Everyone had fun, no fingers were lost, and the night ended with a game of never have I ever. It is safe to say that several Ravens never made it to O2 Touch training the next day.
