I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people over the last 10 years who have been involved with Home-Start South Holland; from the initial steering group to the current board of trustees, who have the unenviable task of disbanding the charity.

I feel really privileged to have been appointed to set up the family support charity in 2008 and to be part of such an amazing organisation.

During my seven years, I have met so many wonderful people who have played integral parts in the success of the organisation.

The trustees, the home-visiting volunteers and other volunteers who have given their time to make a difference to local families.

What a truly remarkable group of people. There are too many to name, but thank you.

We’ve had so many supporters within the community who have helped us financially, to raise awareness or in other ways. Every element benefitting families.

I would also like to thank all the families who have allowed us into their lives to support them.

We know we make a difference and often hear years later how families have continued their journeys in fulfilling their aspirations.

The good news is that it is business as usual and Home-Start will still be there for families in South Holland through the newly merged organisation, Home-Start Lincolnshire (01507 308030).

As I embark on new pastures, I wish them every success in sustaining a much-needed service to families in the county.
