Congratulations to Maz and her husband Ben, on the arrival of a healthy baby boy, Finnigan on 17th October. Mother and baby both doing well.

A great effort by Maz who worked up until 5 days prior to giving birth. Throughout the pregnancy, Maz worked full time, without a sick day and has been a real trooper.  We don’t think it will be too long until we see Maz returning. Congratulations again to the happy family.
