I hope you are all well and those of you in Gauteng are keeping nice and warm. Flip it is getting chilly.
A big welcome to our new clients. I trust that you are all satisfied with the service that you have received. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to improve or make things better for you.
Some good news is that Priscilla’s is growing up. We now have our own domain name and will be upgrading our website soon. Thanks to Mike for his very kind assistance in this regard. Also, his enthusiasm for all things digital is amazing (and catching) and is matched only by his knowledge of all things digital. If anybody needs any digital work done, please contact me so I can refer you to him. Please look out for the new site and let us know what you think (once it goes live).
We held our first ever midweek outing on 5 July. We had 8 people attend which is small but given that it was our first event, the cold and the fact that it is a school night, we were happy with the attendance. I think everyone had a good time. Irene and I certainly enjoyed the company. I hope that at our next event more of you will be able to attend (and that the weather is warmer). We will write a full review on the website, in a few days time so please keep an eye out for that. I thought though that I would share this with you all right away… One of our guests, E, had this to say to me today:
‘I felt really comfortable with you all. And I told B this morning how important it is for us all to have safe space to move in.
Last night made a difference for me.’
This really warms my heart and makes me feel very special. If we can make a difference to people in even a small way I am happy!
I would also like to take this opportunity to share some information with you:
As I think you all know we are working hard on getting a permanent, private venue for you all. It looks like we will have access to a venue from December 2016. We will need to do some renovations (we have had someone come and look at our plans and he is confident he can do what needs to be done), so we are hoping to have it up and running by early 2017 depending on when the builder can start work. December is a bad month for this.
In the meantime we are using our property for storage. This is fast running out so I recommend that if you are considering getting some storage (before December 2016) that you get in early to avoid disappointment.
We have secured access to an accommodating and friendly guest house nearby with very reasonable rates. We are happy to book this for you and assist you with all your dealings with them, to ensure your identity remains private if that is important to you. Rooms are small but mostly adequate and they are very flexible regarding check in times etc. They also offer a five hour rate which could work for some of you. Please be in touch for details.
Once again, thank you to all of you for your ongoing support. Please contact us should you need anything, we are happy to help wherever we can. We are happy to meet over a coffee anytime that suits you to find out what you may need.
