Earlier today, Lucas – Holborn Community Association’s CEO – was ambushed after he rushed to Millman Street Centre, ostensibly to deal with a sudden ’emergency.’
However, this was merely a ruse orchestrated by Saira to lure him here for a surprise – for it is his birthday. HCA Members and staff signed a birthday card, sang an appropriate song (you know which one: it wasn’t either of the ones by Altered Images or Stevie Wonder respectively), and a chocolate cake was rustled up at short notice and presented to him. Lucas himself cut the cake and sportingly ensured that our members each had a slice before tucking in himself.
Saira took loads of photos on her ‘super-duper’ (a technical term, apparently) phone. And so, for once, the poor beleaguered reader will have half decent photos to look at [See following slideshow]:
However, those accustomed to the fuzzy, blurry, out-of-focus snaps synonymous with this reporter are also catered for:
Of course, it’s far too late for your HCA hack to try to ingratiate himself with our CEO. Nonetheless, he wishes Lucas a happy birthday – or Alles Gute zum Geburtstag – and of course many, many more!
