North Devon RE Hub

Autumn 2014

And so a new year begins....

OK, so I imagine you have come crashing down to Earth after the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, but now's the time to get your creative juices flowing for a year of inspiring RE.

We will be setting the dates for this year's hub meetings soon. If you have any suggestions for areas you would like to cover, then please get in touch (email below). Hope to see as many of you as possible at next month's conference in Saltash!

Look out too for more resources coming to your email inbox soon!

Farmington Fellowships
