Re: Hi....Anyone from Gloucester?

Such very sad news, thoughts with Debbies family and friends.
I think we all agree bloody cancer needs stamping out, we just don't seem to be making any progress in finding a cure for this awful disease. x

Re: Hi....Anyone from Gloucester?

Hi everybody,
Just to let you all know debbie's funeral was very sad, but the crem was very full standing room only. so she had a good send off.
We have another meet up next Wed on 16th at the Longford Inn 7.30, when we will be having a toast to debbie. WE would welcome any new ladies that want to join us for a chat and a drink. I will meet anybody outside so you dont have to come on ur own.
And Happy New Year

Re: Hi....Anyone from Gloucester?

Hi all.
Hope you have all enjoyed the Christmas Festivities and that you are feeling better Chris.
Well I have a new grandaughter, she is 2mths old now, Siennah Mae, mum only just made it to the hospital!!
I was offered a new job as housekeeper at a nursing home, but after completing the medical questionnaire the manager withdrew the offer, I fought my case and she re-offered it subject to OH clearence....that was in September....there has been endless e-mails, letters, phonecalls, the then manager is 'no longer in their employment'!....and it was only on the 17th December that I finally got a call from OH....this was after me persistently pushing.....they said they would pass information to their doctor, and rang me back that afternoon to say doctor had no concerns but was recommending manual handling training and to be allowed above average time off,......well I had a letter with a start date of 14th January....(even though they know I have to give 4 wks notice)....they addressed the manual handling training but not the other recommendation.....so the saga continues!!!
Well Happy New Year to you all.

Re: Hi....Anyone from Gloucester?

Hi guys. Watch this space. I've got a few contacts in Stroud and Ciren who I know are in same boat as me, and have also met a couple of ladies from the forum, so feeling fine for mutual support at present. So lovely of you to offer to meet, and I will certainly bear in mind. In the meantime, I may try to get something started in Stroud.

Best wishes
