Adviceline stats

No cake this month, however I feel that we are in line to achieve 20% for April:

  • We hit 15% for answering 107 calls. North Somerset demand was 706.
  • South Glos did 8% with 52 calls; Bristol did 4% with 64 calls.
  • Jean was the Queen of the phones with Steve Hughes and Sue Sayer sharing the podium.

Ongoing venue for staff meetings

We are finding it difficult to get a venue for our staff meetings. The options available to us are: 

  1. Change the meeting time to 1.30 pm and book the United Reform Church Hall in the afternoon
  2. Continue our search for a more convenient venue and keep our staff meetings to start at 10.15 am. 

Please let Fiona know if you have any ideas for venues or comments about the change of time and whether this would be more or less convenient for you.

Please can you check the online rota when putting in your days please, we have had some days oversubscribed (I never thought I would say that) and other days a little short. We are particularly keen to ensure that the outreaches are covered, Nailsea could do with 2 volunteers each if possible.
