Sober for October
On a warm sunny day on Wednesday 2nd October, 7 members including volunteers, took the tram to Salford Docks. We walked through the amazing architecture and alongside the river to the War Museum . The trees turning golden and yellow contrasted beautifully against the structures of the buildings and suspension bridges.Paul commented” We had a great day, I met a pensioner who walked with me around the museum, gave me some really good information on the war days.”David ” The day out at the WMN was really interesting, reading about about both 1st & 2nd world wars. The film showing different experiences of the trenches, the sounds of war made it more real, a very moving experience,worth paying a visit. ”
Wayne Jones has been our systems administrator for 12 months and is now about to leave. Id like to give a massive thank you from everyone at making a difference. As well as helping out of the charity shop and serving in the Oasis cafe and has been a brilliant support to everyone. Including me, Janice! We wish you much success in your new job. It has been a pleasure to have worked with you.
A note from Wayne (Thats him on the far right)
“I would like to thank Janice, who gave a chance even with such a large job gap before i joined on a placement that became paid. I would like to thank everyone, my fellow staff, members past and present who make the centre what it is, the volunteers i loved working with, also our loyal cafe customers who help with out knowing you help. It is with a sad, heavy heart i leave my position, but hey-ho, you’re not gonna get rid of me anyway, best flat white in Ashton, Thank you all”
