Goodbye and good luck to Helen Morris
We are sorry that Helen Morris is leaving the club and moving to Lincoln very shortly. Helen joined just over a year ago and has refreshed and maintained our website over the last year, and hasn’t she done a brilliant job! She has been an active energetic member and was also a key member of the 70th Anniversary Conference team. She has made a great contribution to the club, as well as being good company and we will certainly miss her. We wish her all the best for the new chapter in her life in Lincoln.

Think On It!
Our President for 2019/20 is Helen Piddock- Jones and she has chosen her theme for the year to be “Think On It”
SIGBI Federation President Sue Williams has a theme for this year entitled ‘Think on it’ which encourages Members to raise awareness of mental health.
She says “Good mental health is fundamental to thriving in life. It is the essence of who we are and how we experience the world. Yet, compared to physical health, so little is commonly known about mental ill health and how to prevent it. That must change”
Helen says: “I am taking her lead and devoting my whole year to all aspects of mental health. Now that may all sound a bit depressing but it isn’t because in each situation we are going to be looking at the positives. What can be done by experts and amateurs like us to make things better. We will also be looking for projects in which we can get involved.”
