Nothing in The Well ever stays the same for very long. About a month ago we welcomed Rachel, Jeff & Nicole to the volunteer team. The next week Alastair told us that he would be moving to England to be closer to his daughter.
At the same time Christine confirmed that she and Brian would be returning to live in Australia in January 2016. (I’m sure it’s absolutely nothing to do with the weather here – they will be moving to the sunshine coast . . . ) We will miss Christine so much – not just as our Admin Worker, but also for the work she does with Bubbles (our mother and toddler group) and our Craft group.
Faye also finished in October and her baby boy – Aidan Mehrgan – was born on the 29th October. We will miss Faye very much – she covered a lot of shifts for us, and we wish her, Andrew and baby Aidan every blessing, as they settle into family life.
Tonight for the first time we will be opening in the evenings – this pilot has come about as several people who work have said they would like to help out at The Well, but they work and can’t commit to during the day. We have no idea how this will go, but it’s good to have a team in place to try this out.
