1. We've heard of a lock-in, but a lock-out? Cirkle staffers had an extra spring in their step during last week's National Work-Life Week, after being locked out of their office at 5.30pm on the dot every day to encourage them to leave work on time. The silver award winners in PRWeek's Best Places to Work also provided fruit for staff to stock up on their vitamin C.

2. PRWeek blogger and Speed MD Steve Earl had to nurse a sore backside after cycling from London to Paris recently. The 300-mile trip saw him raise more than £3,500 for Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Alzheimer's Society.

3. Taylor Herring has been hitting the ale to celebrate Private Eye's 50th anniversary celebrations. Editor Ian Hislop enjoyed pulling a pint of Lord Gnome's Bitter at the magazine's famous haunt, the Coach and Horses pub in Soho, to celebrate the publication of a new book about Private Eye.
