Today was the usual hectic Friday; however, in the middle of it all I was desperate to find time for someone special.
My morning started with the usual phone calls and then a visit to Colpac in Flitwick.
Colpac is a company which manufactures packaging for the sandwiches you buy in M&S etc.
Colpac, competing in the global market place, is growing at a rate they are just about keeping on top of. They need to extend their premises in order to cope with demand and create more jobs. A fairly large problem as there doesn’t appear to be any land in Flit wick that they can extend onto.
A problem which needs to be sorted as we do not want to lose a company which employs a hundred local people.
Meetings with constituents and a local agency and then I dived into Alan's house, which was a surprise to him!
Alan is a constituent who became a friend and has been rather poorly just lately.
I sat and listened today as Alan sang the praises of the ‘Hospice at Home’ nurses. He spoke of their genuine care and affection, and how absolutely nothing was too much trouble. He was so touched by the level of care and devotion he is being given, his nurses are angels.
We all know that the Hospice movement depends upon donations from the general public. So if you get the chance to ever put your hand in your pocket and donate to one of the most worthwhile charities in the UK, then do. We may all need an angel one day.
