This has been an unusual week. I had a free Sunday, so managed to get some letters written and everything ready for Monday’s meeting at the Fire Service College, Moreton in Marsh.
We had a first meeting with the College Events organiser and Site Manager to talk about the Fire chaplains’ Conference in September when we hope to have Bob Neill MP, the Minister for Fire, as our Keynote Speaker before meeting with the Firefighters’ Memorial Trust in the Chapel.
A series of Diocesan meetings followed, and then I managed to issue the April Edition of Lichfield Rotary Club’s “Monthly Bulletin” on time. I was particularly pleased to receive a few plaudits for this edition, as I’d sweated blood and tears to get it out on time. The accompanying “funny” seemed to go down well too!
Now, I’m getting ready to contact the Chief Fire Officers’ Association to ask them to invite their Chaplains to Conference. I wonder how the cuts will affect us this year.
