Community Manager

Some news from me!

Hi everyone,


It's with mixed emotions that I let you all know that I will be moving on from the role of Community Manager.


It's been amazing watching the community grow from a small group of 80 in 2014 when we launched, to now over 11,000! It never ceases to amaze me how awesome this community is. It's a place where everyone is embraced and so much encouragement and thoughtful support.


It was a really hard decision for me to leave this role, as it's been a wonderful 4 (!!) years working with the community. However, you are in really great hands with @Lauz@Margot , the mods and the person taking my role (who will start in late August).


My last day is next Friday 20 July. I will be around for Friday Feast - so it would be great to see you there Heart

Such sad news for the community here @NikNik but I am sure a wonderful opportunity for you.  You will be sadly missed 😣
