Time to make a right turn?

Time to make a right turn?

Just the other day, giving directions to our office, I realised that I told the driver to turn right, when in fact I meant left!  A swift left turn at the next opportunity got us back on course while I was left (or should that be right!) to explain my problem differentiating right and left when giving directions!  How often in life do we think we know where we are heading, have the route clear in our minds and then suddenly, our calm, composure and confidence are shattered. 

That same sense of knowing where we are going one minute, only to be perplexed when our carefully thought out plans are changed with one phone call, one incident, one difficult conversation - is one most people understand.  Hope trust is not immune to that sort of situation; we too have to deal with tough news that changes the direction of an activity, or our plan for that day. 

Changes in direction are always easier when we have planned them, but so often we have changes forced upon us.  One reason we try to offer a variety of events is that, when circumstances change for people, here at hope trust we want to be able to help, and to do that we need lots of different ways to offer that support. So, why not give us a call if you think we can help?

We've done it!

We've done it!

All the weeks of hard work, planning, filling in forms, reading and then drafting protocols has paid off and now hope trust can boast a newly revamped kitchen as well as a 5 star hygiene rating from Suffolk Coastal! Thanks to everyone who helped, but especially Lee Munro who did the kitchen revamp, Brenda Hammond from SCDC for her patience and expertise, those funders who have supported us by donating to the project. Now all that remains is for anyone who comes along to Maidstone Hall to enjoy the food that is prepared!  We are open every Wednesday morning between 10am and 12 noon if you want to give us a look?
