We recently went on an OCEAN Lab Away Day to the beautiful region of the Cotswolds. This special day was a nice opportunity for the group to spend some time together, share ideas, discuss potential collaborations, and most importantly have some fun! We started the day off by having some morning tea and coffee in the picturesque village of Great Tew, followed by a small hike around the scenic rolling hills and grasslands of the countryside. We then enjoyed lunch at a charming 16th century traditional pub with delicious food and a wonderful cosy atmosphere. We had many interesting and fruitful discussions about cross-cutting projects and collaborations across the group, as well as brainstorming some innovative research ideas for upcoming events. We finished off the day at the Soho Farmhouse, a country club, where the team enjoyed lots of fun outdoor and indoor activities, and could relax and unwind in a nice setting. All in all it was a fantastic day and a great way for the team to spend some time together!
