Why reinvent the wheel when it has been done for me… (plus I have been itching to use the ‘repost’ button that the WordPress people have recently introduced!)

This video tells of recent events at St Mary’s Respite Centre in Walthamstow (see my previous post #AWESOMESTOW) have this week made the front page of our local paper, the Waltham Forest Guardian.
