Saying ‘thank you’ is simple but can mean so much and goes such a long way especially in this difficult time in the NHS. At Heart of the Health Service, we are committed to showing our gratitude and giving others the opportunity to say thank you to NHS staff. One of the ways in which we do this is through Thank You Dinners which we host in partnership with local communities.
With nearly 10 million people now living in areas defined as ‘rural’, a reliable transport infrastructure is important and can have a significant impact on people’s quality of life and ability to carry out daily activities, not least because of its role in enabling access employment, education, shopping and health services.
The work known as ‘Social Issues in South Lincolnshire’ or Fensociety Project was initiated in November 2010 by Fr Jonathan Sibley of St Mary, Long Sutton. This was partially due to his involvement with local communities and new arrivals from the European Union. He was asked to coordinate and assess the needs and nature of social injustice issues in this area and create an informed and coordinated response to them.
The Anglican and Baptist churches of Long Sutton in Lincolnshire, have been working together for several years and have held focused times of mission during the last 18 months to promote social cohesion.
