November 2018 – Reflections from our PRO

The year started off very uncertain but gathered speed and support as a rolling stone gathers momentum – we have ended the season on a high – a reward for Brian who has steered us like a motorhome through fog!  Who needs TV stars when we have our own talent, probably better!  We found the way to the future is ‘positivity’ and as PRO that’s what I’ve tried to provide, very much supported by a team that have strengthened and increased in number to get to where we are now.  Our life at the moment, with the North Central Group, is like going back, not to our childhood but to our teenage years with all the fun, parties, dancing, learning of new skills and meeting people but without any exams!
