Ms Featherstone realises our Waitrose hamper won't help to recreate the jobs destined to go, but she says the staffroom is always a happier place when there are biscuits in it.
The hamper contains a refreshing lemon drink, home-made jams and lemon curd, mouth-watering chocolates and crunchy biscuits. It usually costs pound;46 and is available exclusively from Waitrose Direct Gifts, at www.waitrose. com, which delivers to any mainland UK address. For a chance to win one, just tell us why you and your colleagues deserve it. Send your message, marked Waitrose offer, by email or postcard to the address on the right.
