Farewell to Jill!

Our dear friend, Jill Robson, has flown the Messenger nest after many years of recruiting and looking after our volunteers, as well as leading the Blundell’s team.  Jill has been the heart and soul of the Messenger, but she’ll never be far away.   We surprised her with a Zooming send-off, complete with a glass of bubbles and a bowl of Spring plants for her garden.

To lock or not to lock….

…. there’s little option at the moment!  We will continue to record from home until the Spring.  At least we now have a flexible roster to cover every eventuality.


It’s a nightmare to find services when most in need of help.   a-Doddle is the answer!   Charities and community groups complete their profile on a-Doddle, which are displayed on regional maps, enabling people to ‘Find Help, Give Help and Connect Locally’.    This is a great resource – take a look at adoddle.org
