Sam Foster unfortunately had an accident on Tuesday (5th March), he came off his motorbike joining the A50. He was taken to the QMC in Nottingham where surgery has been very successful and is now expected to make a full recovery, although it will take some time. I know you all will all wish him the well, we shall be bringing some paper around classes over the next week so any messages you want to write please do, and we can then put them all together in a card for him, we shall also have a collection for anyone wanting to make a donation.
