The lovely Marie Bishop is retiring at aged 84 from her Neighbourhood Support role in Greenhithe. She has been in the role for over 7 years and has been a wonderful asset to our community. She has done an amazing job running weekly International Friends and our Neighbourhood Support database and regular newsletter. Also Mainly Music and plenty of other things. We had a lovely party for her where she launched her book about her life story mid-year.

Greenhithe Community Trust has engaged Suzanne Piper about 10 hours each week to take on the Neighborhood Support role. We are all enjoying getting to know her. She and Marie have overlapped their roles for a few weeks.

Meanwhile our beloved Marie is still local so it’s not a full goodbye, just a morphing as she steps back.
