Box of delights

Staff of the Hampshire Music Service have been in temporary accommodation since the floods of 2000 inundated their Winchester base. Now, after just over three years, they've finally moved into purpose-built premises at the Rookwood Centre in Eastleigh. In less than a fortnight the team has unpacked 300 removal crates full of files and paperwork that support the work of 200 instrumental and singing teachers with more than 14,000 pupils in 500 schools. Jill Larner, a senior manager, says staff have shown tremendous goodwill and helped each other settle in - the curved desks are a big hit. The Friday hamper full of organic goodies from Duchy Originals will boost their celebrations.

The hamper contains a refreshinglemon 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.
