@Innov_Dementia sending good wishes to Philly Hare on learning of her retirement. Many could know her from very wide ranging work at the JRF but dare say it will be her drive and inspirational initiatives with DEEP & Innovations in Dementia where she will leave her mark.

A busy afternoon session at STAND's meeting centre space at Kennoway Community Shed. On the menu today was our decorative panels for the raised planting beds and a visit by Gus Harrower . Always an honour to work with this amazing singer/song writer...he just gets it...😊

What a wonderful farewell from someone I’m privileged to call a friend….🥹 it’s not really a farewell though, it’s a “watch what adventures I’m going to have now” @fullmoonfelting x
