Going to work socials was a no-brainer
There aren't many work socials that I've missed. We have two every year. One is organised before the end of the Autumn Term and the other is in July.
They are fun and it gives us a chance to meet everyone outside of work, when we're a little more relaxed.
It was a no-brainer because vegetarians were always catered for. The main person who organises the events, is vegetarian, so she makes sure they are catered for. However, when I went vegan, I had to ask the lady who organises the events, to contact the venue and find out if they cater for vegans. I didn't think it would be a big deal, because we always book a hotel or restaurant, where you'd think, the chefs would be used to catering for all sorts of dietary needs.
