Well done to these two lovely members from Essex! Heather Lockwood (left in the picture) has been stitching away making scrubs for the Broomfield Hospital, and Jill Wathen is delivering them. They’ve also raised £4,600 for the hospital. As you can see, they are supporters of the Big Learner Relay so well used to fund raising. An example to us all.
All of our planned programme of workshops have now been postponed until further notice. Once we know what is happening and restrictions are lifted we will look again at booking courses.
There are of course a number of online courses available to you on our website at a reasonable cost. So if you’d been wanting to do one and didn’t have the time, well maybe now is a time to consider doing them.
And we will also be continuing our online workshops on Wednesday afternoons. These are free to attend and you can register to join via the zoom platform, or join via Facebook Live.
Licences expiring are a worry, and the latest from DVLA is that licence renewals should be done online using this link. However, it still says that applications to renew bus and lorry licences should be sent in. We will try and get clarification on this.
Have you received an email from Gareth Llewellyn CEO at DVSA this evening? I have mine already. In this afternoon’s Tier 1 meeting, Lynne thanked DVSA for sending this out to individual ADIs.
