Spring at Last!
I hope everyone is enjoying the (slightly) warmer weather as we all sur-face from our winter hibernation again and hope for more rain.
We have welcomed a number of new clients to the service since our last newsletter – if you are new to Meals on Wheels, we hope you are enjoying the meals and also not having to worry about cooking or shopping as much any more. Don’t hesitate to contact the office if you have any questions about the service.
We have hosted several visitors in recent months, as highlighted on the front page – Thank you to the volunteers who supported both sets of visitors.
Our AGM on September 19th was held in conjunction with a luncheon for those who were able to attend, and we shared a lovely meal and productive meeting. I would like to re-state my thanks to Ruth Blanch who has stepped down from the Management Committee after many years of service, but will continue to volunteer as a driver for us. Our new Committee member is Mr Doug Lobban – a regular volunteer and welcome addition to the team.
On a sad note, we will be saying farewell to our wonderful chef Kellie at the end of the year as she moves on to another position, teaching at the New England Community College. Kellie is a very gifted teacher and we hope she will succeed in this new adventure – we all wish her the very best. We are in the process of recruiting a new chef and ex-pect no interruptions to our service over the transition. Thank you for your understanding during this period.
Kind Regards, Kerryn Williams
