May Update

Recruitment is under way for the post of Near Neighbours Coordinator (CTC) in eastern London details are on the main website. The deadline is noon no Monday 23rd May 2011.

A recent conversation reminded me of the importance of celebrating and publicising the work we do. With a bit of practice it really isn't too much work to get in to the habit of sending regular items to your local paper who are often keen to receive items and if notified in advance may send a photographer. The Church of England is currently offering very reasonably priced training sessions in many aspects of communications from print to all aspects of web and social media. Don't forget to include PEN in your publicity networks.
