A Message from Duncan

Whilst on a short break last week Katrina fell whilst ice-skating and broke her wrists. With both arms in plaster I have become her primary carer and as a result will be less available than usual. I am grateful to colleagues for covering some responsibilities. I will endeavour to be around as much as possible
