Collegiality and working from home
Self-isolation and working from home can increase stress and reduce wellbeing. A video conference is one way to break the isolation.
The Bar Knitting Group met by videoconference yesterday evening, albeit with BYO wine and cheese. Michelle Painter SC described the meeting as "a triumph of the spirit" and a great example of collegiality in a time of crisis. By all accounts, it raised spirits. "I was surprised how important it seemed to be to catch up with colleagues and friends", she said.
As always, the Bar Knitting Group is keen to welcome new members, who should contact Lisa Allen, Ingrid King or Michelle Painter SC.
