FRIDAY FEATURES

Friday again and another bank holiday to look forward to.  Fingers crossed for sunny weather.

This week saw Canning O’Neill’s appointment by engineering consultancy URS, to advise on their search and acquisition of 16,000 – 18,000 sq ft offices in the Birchwood area, our very own John Nash returned from his holidays having saved a spring lamb from a stream and James Dickinson has started drinking herbal tea.  All in all a very good week.

If the bank holiday allows you the time to browse the location of your next offices, check out our offices to let Manchester or South Manchester…Old Trafford…Warrington etc etc.

A Friday wouldn’t be a Friday without some trivia…

  • Did you know why we have this early May bank holiday? It probably originated as a Roman festival honouring the beginning of the summer season (in the northern hemisphere). Go ahead and enjoy it.
  • A duck’s quack doesn’t echo, and no one knows why.
  • Tea is said to have been discovered in 2737 BC by a Chinese emperor when some tea leaves accidentally blew into a pot of boiling water. The tea bag was introduced in 1908 by Thomas Sullivan of New York.
  • Camels are called “ships of the desert” because of the way they move, not because of their transport capabilities. A Dromedary camel has one hump and a Bactrian camel two humps. The humps are used as fat storage. Thus, an undernourished camel will not have a hump.
