Contacting the Well-Being Coordinator
Posted 24/08/2020

I would like to apologise for being quiet and not replying to emails this last couple of weeks. Many of you may have heard already, but, for those who haven't; I managed to break my leg in a ridiculous manner and had to have an operation on it, so I have been resting.

I am now back to working my normal hours, however, due to the injury and doctors orders I am currently working from home so if you need to get in touch you can contact me via:

Email: alice@rewdt.org oMobile: 07948466380

I understand calls to mobiles can be costly so feel free to request that I call you back and I will do so promptly.

My hours of work are:
Wednesday 9am-11am 1:30pm-3:30pm
Thursday 9am-3pm
Friday 9am-11am 1:30pm-3:30pm
 
thanks
Alice
