Hi Vickie,

We're looking for some part-time voluntary (supported) work placements for our young people from Horizons - who have a learning disability.  I work with a young man who is on the autistic continuum who has a number of skills which would be perfectly suited to sorting and re-shelving books.  I wonder if you think that Oldham Library might consider discussing the possibility of offering a placement?

Hi Vickie, yes he would be interesting to listen to- thanks for the link.

We did actually message Keith regarding holding a stall at this event, but I believe he isn't the organiser now. Could you let us know if you have room for us please.

Welcome back Vickie!  How's the family?  Coping OK now it's grown?!

I hadn't realised Keith has returned downstairs but saw him with Tina on Wednesday.  Will catch up soon.

Hello Vickie

I just created a new group "Energy Efficiency" for those interested in energy-related issues in the workplace. Who at your place would be interested in joining (possibly a Facilities Manager, Estates Manager, Buildings Services Manager?)

best wishes

Hi Vicky welcome on board.

I have been a bit quite on updates and information since christmas had a lot on at home and with work but hopefully the backlog will have cleared this week so i can get back to normal.

Nice to meet you this afternoon Vickie. Sorry I dashed off without catching up with you at the end, but I had to get back for the children.

Thanks for the warm welcome this evening at the library's 'Ask About Business' event. It was very informative and very useful for researching the niche markets ;-) Great ideas and please put on some more events like this. Thanks to Jonathan also.
