SE’s VDO team are back!
Well, what a start to the year. We trust that you are all safe and well and that ‘Lockdown 3 – The Return of Lockdown’ is not affecting you too much. In all seriousness, it is a hard time for everyone and winter can be isolating for many at the best of times so we hope that you will be finding solace in activities you enjoy as best you can. We all know that nature has a power to heal and there is always something to spot in the changing of the seasons. Spring will soon be here.
As well as wishing you a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year (!), we thought that we would briefly update you that we have returned from furlough after approximately a month and we are both available on Tuesdays at present. Obviously this means that our working time is significantly reduced but please do contact us if you need anything and we will do our best to help. Your Volunteer Manager is also a good contact, of course, and most of the SE team are also now back at work in some capacity.
We will be looking at what online events we can hold in the next few months to give us all an opportunity to see each other and hopefully learn something new so keep your eyes peeled for details.
Thank you for your patience and, as always, dedication and support for the Trust. We really hope to be able to safely see you all soon.
