Nancy's leaving do 29th Sept 2015Everyone seems to agree that Nancy Taylor’s retirement party at Fletton House on Tuesday 29th September was a lovely event. Whilst we are all sorry to see Nancy go, the atmosphere of the day was more of a celebration of her time at Volunteer Action and of what she has achieved. Val Chesser led the farewells and Nancy gave a short speech of thanks and passed on a couple of motivational quotations! There was a presentation at 1pm, including a picture of Oundle and other gifts and cards. Nancy described herself as quite ‘overwhelmed’ but ‘very happy’.

Around 40 people came and went including most of the trustees, a good number of drivers and befrienders and some of our office support staff. A tribute in itself to the quality and quantity of volunteering that goes on in our area. The food went down very well and a variety of drinks kept everyone happy. Many people were interested to get their first visit to Fletton House and to see where the new VA offices will be.
