Summer 2013 Edition 25
From The Edi tor . . . A sunny welcome to the Summer
edition of One Voice – longmay it last!
During the past fewmonths I’ve enjoyed catching up with clients and carers at NMC particularly during CarersWeek and at The Open Day. Last month I also had the opportunity to be part of a disabled “Festival Mystery Shop” at “Chester Rocks” (see page 17 ) and enjoyed holding a coffee morning in aid of NMC.
It’s been a busy fewmonths at NMC. The new access road is now complete and was officially opened on June 20th at the Open Day by Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire, David Briggs, M.B.E., K St J. Barclays Community Teamhave kindly filled our boarders with a beautiful array of plants and the shed now has a set of tools and is ready for those who would like some time out .
In this edition we have an update fromthe Trustees on NMC’s first year as an independent charity, we share with you some key staff changes and there’s a report fromNMC in the Midlands which opened its doors to clients in January.
Bob Cullen shares his wonderful trip to Australia, there’smore information on retiring and an update on the benefit changes. In the profile section, we share in the life of Anne Derricutt who sadly passed away at the end of last year. The Photography Competition is being re-launched in Anne’s memory.
Finally, as we celebrate the 25th Edition of One Voice, I would like to take this opportunity to thank “everyone” for their contributions; clients, carers, PA’s, staff, familymembers, volunteers and also the Design and Print Team. One Voice is a teameffort.Without you all there is no voice. Here’s to the next 25 editions!
Have a great summer… With best wishes,
