Summer News 2018!

I was lucky enough to win an award at the Barking Mad conference last month.  It was for ‘excellence in service’ which means I’ve passed all the audits and delivering the service above and beyond Head Office expectations.  It was lovely to get this recognition and thanks go to my assistant Pam for putting up with my nagging!
