Good Citizen Hits The Headlines

Hi everyone

I recently received a Good Citizenship Award from the police.

The Exeter based Express & Echo newspaper has covered the story of why I got the award. I am on the front page and page 8.

I took some photos of the newspaper so you can catch a glimpse.




I feel honoured to be given the award and doubly honoured to be featured as front page news.

Hi Everyone

I am mega busy at the moment creating my website, it will be very similar to with all of your favourite information pages but with a blog added for much more interaction with you. This way you can let me know what you like and what you don’t and what other help and support you need in your quest to find employment.

My web host who hosts has decided to stop people from using RVSiteBuilder  to build any new website by removing it from their system. As my site is built using this, I now have to get access to my site admin panel through a link. I was informed that eventually the RVSiteBuilder will be dis-continued completely. was due to be launched at the end of this year but in light of this new challenge, I am creating it now and transferring it’s valuable information over to I have to do this manually and re-format it before adding it to the new WordPress.Org site for

My Invitation to St James’s Palace





Hi Everyone

As you probably know is your one stop resource for redundancy. As well as the practical aspects of redundancy it also covers health and wellbeing including stress, anxiety and depression.

You may like to know that I do voluntary work as a Health Buddy for CSV (Community Service Volunteers) in association with BBC Radio Devon. We promote health messages, learn from health specialists and encourage the 5 ways to wellbeing:

  1. Connect
  2. Be Active
  3. Take Notice
  4. Learn
  5. Give

On Wednesday 10th of March, I went to a CSV Health Buddy celebration of music and activities from local refugees who are being looked after by Devon and Cornwall Refugee Support.

I could not help but take notice of the variety of talent amongst the refugees. There were lots of activities including singing, sports, character making out of carrots and foods from their country. I learnt more about them and the foods they eat. People from different backgrounds connected and it was lovely of them to give up their afternoon to entertain and teach us.

At this event I was pleasantly surprised to be presented with a bouquet of flowers and a Certificate of Achievement for helping a distressed and vulnerable person as part of my role as a CSV (Community Service Volunteer) Health Buddy.

I was even more thrilled to be told that I had been chosen to represent the CSV organisation at their 50th anniversary celebration, to be held at St James’s Palace in London on Monday 15th of July 2013. In the presence of Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I feel incredibly honoured to be chosen for.

Redundancy can make you feel deflated and powerless. Take back the control in your life by discovering what you were born to do and make it happen for yourself.

I am living my dreams and I want you to be too.

Stay positive

Recognition for beating redundancy blues

Hi Everyone

As you may know, I enjoy writing and I am currently working on my first e-Book about breaking through the barriers of redundancy, to help people who are redundant to get back into work. It will also be useful to jobseekers.

On my writing blog I have recently gained more followers and more recognition through being nominated for several blog awards. I was happy to make my nominations to other well deserving bloggers and was absolutely thrilled when one of then did a blog about myself, making references to my writing and my redundancy help.

You can view her blog post about me here:

Recognition for a nomination.

I am grateful that I am in a position to help others.

Stay positive
