This week in Fellowship...
I suspect it's been rather calm, because I wasn't there. I'm currently catching up with everything, so it feels like a week of bits and pieces.
On the recommendation of Val, the longest-standing member of the Fellowship office, we went for lunch in the newly renovated cafe in the crypt at St Martins in the Fields. She is a source of grounded advice on most things in life, and in return we eat all the pecans from variety nut packets, because she doesn't like them.
We're off to Newcastle tomorrow for a new Fellows evening in Gateshead, which I'm looking forward to. It's the first regional event I've attended, and following the buzz on the Networks platform, I'm keen to find out about what's been going on.
And as part of the revamp of internal communications, we're getting a new intranet, which is due to go live in a few weeks time. We got to see the test site last week, and it's going to be an enormous help enabling us to pull together and share the huge amount of diverse information that is floating around in this building.
Until next time...

If young people are to flourish in this new world of rapid change and insecurity, we need policies that support young people in the here and now, whilst also protecting their futures. Thinking about economic security is one way to do this.
