It's time for a cup of tea, Chris!
Chris Carpenter has retired from being Head of the CCFE Public Relations Group, a position he has held since 1994. Chris' colleagues, family and friends came together on Friday 16 April to celebrate his 32-year-long career in fusion research in an event where there were many jokes and a lot of laughter, tinged with sadness at the departure of a colleague for whom everyone had great affection and respect.
