Shane’s Work Christmas Lunch party and Council-wide Christmas Party

Yesterday was a great day that turned into a fantastic night! Our team had its Christmas lunch at the local pub out at Hanger Lane, which included Turkey and Cranberry sauce, plus ‘all the trimmings’ as they say! We then stayed on at the pub, until it was time to make a move for the Council-wide Christmas party that was being held at the Ealing Town Hall building..

It became one of those nights that you don’t plan, and that turn into something memorable! We pub-crawled our way from the Fox & Goose, then to our office to get changed and ready to party, then headed towards Ealing stopping at the Sportsbar on the Hanger Lane Gyratory, then The Haven Bar at Haven Green in Ealing..

The town hall party was way beyond what we expected.. over 600 employees got together and danced to plenty of 80’s and 90’s classics until 2am in the morning when they kicked us all out..

I finally got home at 4am after a drunken stagger from Shepherd’s Bush to Hammersmith, and then got a night bus the last leg of the trip to Putney Bridge and into bed.. I dragged myself into work today with very sore feet and an equally sore head, matched only by the other sore bodies around me in the office that day!
