Here's what's happening soon ...
Saying Goodbye to a Special Friend!
We wish our very good friend Terri Fryer our very best wishes as she takes on an important career move this month. Having spent the last 6 years in family learning and adult education services at Manor Farm she now feels ready for a new challenge and takes on the role of Print and Accounts Manager with local company KENDATA Ltd in in Aldridge.
Everyone at Manor Farm has come to know and love Terri and we will miss the valuable part she has played in our success story. We know she'll be in regularly to see how our community programme continues to thrive and feel sure she will always be available should we need to call on her for support.
Best wishes Terri!
