Lockdown forced us all to embrace new ways of working. At Evolution we have focused on improving new internal processes that have allowed us to work from home when required, whilst continuing to provide a quality service to our clients. This has inevitably resulted in an increased spend on IT, but over the course of the pandemic we have also noticed a considerable reduction in the amount of paper we have used and this has prompted us to consider how we as a firm can reduce our carbon footprint. Our first initiative is related to the publication of this newsletter. Where possible, rather than posting, we will be emailing this publication out to as many clients as possible. We have also worked with Carly Press to produce hard copies of this edition on recycled paper and they will be posted in envelopes also made from recycled paper. We would be very pleased to hear what you think. Watch this space for further initiatives.
Lots of happy news to report in this edition, following a particularly busy period for staff here at Evolution.
As you will have read, Alice and Jack finally tied the knot last December, celebrating their wedding in style in the family grain store – suitably decked out for the event of course! Lots of us were able to share the evening with them and what a party it was.
There was further cause for celebration at the beginning of January when Ellie and husband Steve welcomed son number 2 to the Hammett fold – mother, baby, father and big brother are all doing well.
It’s babies galore this spring, as we are also delighted to announce the safe arrival of a baby boy for Callum and wife Becky; a little brother and playmate for their 2-year-old daughter.
Congratulations to you all.
And finally, at last, on Friday 4th February Santa arrived for Team Evolution and we got to enjoy our staff Christmas meal, postponed from December. A big thank you to the Beambridge Inn in Wellington for hosting a very successful evening.
