Today the PA to the CEO sent around the below email…..

Dear All

If anyone has any favourite sayings or quotations, please could you email them to me as I would like to start a “Saying/Quote of the Week” for the Notice Board.

If it is a quotation, maybe you could let me have the person’s name etc.

Just thought it would be a bit of fun and something for us to think about and enjoy.

Thanks and best wishes
