Weekly newsletter for staff w/c 23rd November 2018


Well after all the feedback from last week's news letter, it seems that we have found the best way to communicate news for now anyway.

This week's is shorter as first, there is less to tell you this week and second, I forgot to bring the diary home with me! I will do the diary dates from memory as best I can and will update first thing on Monday and re-send - sorry!
