Henry Hoover still missing

Our beloved hoover, Henry, is still missing from the third floor office. If anyone has borrowed it, please , please return it. Our blue sack trolley has also gone for a wander.

If it is not returned by tomorrow, Eddie will need to check through every studio in the building to try and find it as we really need them.
