This week we say farewell to Anna, who has been working with us as part of a paid internship for four weeks.

Nominations for the 2018 award ceremony are now open, and Golley Slater is once again proud to be acting as sponsor.

With lots of children starting secondary school this week, we worked with client St Joseph’s Hospital in Newport and spoke to Dr Rebecca Walberg – a GP at the hospital – to provide some top tips on how to mentally prepare your child for secondary school. Advice included learning to recognise the signs of anxiety and conversation topics to help them make friends. This was printed in the Western Mail, posted on Wales Online and featured on Wales Online’s new ‘Mams and Dads’ Facebook group which targets parents across the country.
