We are getting ready to prepare a warm welcome for Alison Wedgbury as she comes to live and work at Sheldon as an Alongsider. Some of you may know her already from her first Sheldon involvement as a workparty volunteer, walking the Camino with us, or latterly as a remote worker and working group member for the Sheldon Hub. Alison is currently packing up her boxes and re-homing her cat in Cambridgeshire in preparation for moving to Sheldon at the end of September. She will be living in the Perch Hen Run and working about 2/3 on the Hub and in reception and 1/3 on hospitality and gardening. A year in the first instance, but might well extend for longer.
Here are some edited highlights from her CV
"Authorised Lay Minister and PCC Secretary for All Saints' Church, Cottenham, Ely Foodbank coordinator.
Previous career in adult literacies teacher-training, online learning and vocational training in Eastern Region, London and nationally.
Likes: walking, singing, Tai Chi, multimedia, pantomimes, cooking, gardening, history, archaeology, Greenbelt and Amnesty."
We will be welcoming Alison liturgically on 29th July as part of the annual Community Rededication and hope that many Friends and supporters will be present on that occasion. Please remember Alison and the Community in your prayers. It's always a time of significant adjustment for everyone concerned. Please pray too for her home church at Cottenham and the foodbank in Ely - our gain will be their loss.
