Request:


Request for information regarding any Christmas and New Year parties hosted by The National Archives in 2013.

Outcome:

Successful

Response:

The National Archives Sports and Social Club (SSC) hosted a Christmas party on Friday 6 December 2013 held at The National Archives, Kew.  This was open to all staff, service partners and guests - all of whom had to purchase a ticket in order to attend.

The SSC is a members club which staff can pay a subscription to join.  It is a branch of the wider Civil Service Sports Council (CSSC).  The National Archives' SSC is staffed by volunteers who organise these events in their spare time.

The SSC have informed us that the total spend on this event was £2240.

The SSC also sponsored an alumni Christmas event on Wednesday 11 December 2013 at The National Archives, Kew, for former colleagues.  The SSC inform us that the total spend on this event was £1071.40.

The National Archives do not hold any minutes in which these SSC events were discussed as an agenda item.
