Newsletter 10 January 2018

Firstly – I should apologise for the spelling and grammar errors that appeared in the article about the Daleks in the last newsletter. It shows the perils of blindly cutting and pasting.

Secondly – The MOVE team would like to wish you all a Happy New Year, and hope that 2018 is a positive and prosperous one for you all.

Thirdly – Feeling mischievous? Step In A Puddle And Splash Your Friends Day gives you an excuse to have some fun or even get revenge by jumping in puddles and splashing your friends (pretty self-explanatory). Don’t forget to wear wellies 

MOVE Matters:

 Resource Bank – I intend to implement a ‘Resource Bank’ on the MOVE website, to include all sorts of things that may be of help to partners. We’re looking for partners to let us know of websites that could be of use, of forms and documentation that they may use that helps ease processes etc. If you have something like this, then please let me know and I can add them to the ‘Bank’. Some partners have already responded, so thank you, your efforts are appreciated. Still waiting…..
