……………And at January 2018

We look back on an eventful year as we negotiated and re negotiated, and finally purchased our next house, 3 St William's Way, just over half a mile from Laundry Close

We were able to accommodate 3 men there straight away, but the plan is that it will eventually be home for five or six men when alterations and extensions can be completed.

To manage and support our houses, we have taken on extra part time staff;  Mark left us in the Summer and has been replaced by Ian, who comes with an extensive history in Housing Management, Janice also joined the team having been a Samaritan for 15 years.  Both are settling in well and making good contributions to the work.

Our greatest sadness of last year was the resignation of Jon O'Byrne who has chaired the trustees and been a constant source of support and encouragement for something like 12 years.  He will be missed, but we have hopes he may be able to return to us if other pressures in his life lessen.  Martin Graham takes over the chair.
Vic Ready also had to leave us, but we have been joined by Simon Gay who is Pastor of a local Baptist Church and brings very helpful previous experience.

So, we press on, after a surprisingly peaceful Christmas and New Year, with both houses full and other men hoping to come and with the extension and improvement work on St William's Way being the next major items in our diary.

"Thankful for all that is past and trusting God for all that's to come"
