At my old work place in the old country we had a coffee room. Here at Homerton we have social space. It is a large mezzanine with inviting soft armchairs and round tables, where you can get a cup of coffee, putting a modest sum in the honesty jar; there are newspapers; somebody has just donated a full crate of apples from his garden. When I get eventually get my office, it will be in another building. But everybody seems to enjoy the short walk across the lawn.
