Royal Visit to Oasis Overland HQ

As the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations draw ever closer, we thought we would get into the party spirit.  An initial email was sent round for a ‘bring something British and wear red, white and blue’ lunch.  Slowly this was taken further and further and daily eBay purchases arrived into the office, surrounded by much secrecy by their purchaser!  As everyone made assumptions about each other’s outfits…. the bar was lifted ever higher!

As our offices are closed over the bank holiday weekend our celebrations were set for Friday 1 June.  As 8.30 dawned, The Queen, complete with ‘wearable cape and Union Jack tutu’ walked into the office.  Closely followed by some Union Jack eyelashes, Union Jack leggings and Union Jack top and wig – you get the picture!  Boss Chris and Jackie then arrived in the mandatory red white and blue and we all sat down to work.

Apart from an incident with a split cup of coffee (due to the eyelashes causing an obstruction in the wearers line of vision!) normal service resumed with all of our callers blissfully unaware of the state of us at the end of the phone!

The real fun and games began at lunchtime when everyone brought out their British treats!  We had cucumber sandwiches (with no crusts of course) and a pineapple and cheese Hedgehog.  This was followed by pork pie, cocktail sausages and  sausage rolls.  Novelty cakes and strawberries and Cornish clotted cream finished off.  To Royally wash this down we completed the feast with a glass of Pimms…. ssshhhh don’t tell the bosses….. oh too late one of them was already there!

To prove all of this we had fun in the car park taking some shots to share.  We hope your Jubilee celebrations are as fun as ours!  Oasis Overland sends huge congratulations to her Majesty the Queen on 60 years on the throne!
