Alex Baillie, the new BoB/ BoS coordinator for Northern Ireland, has embarked on her ‘getting to know you’ travels around the region.
Three fellowship members were able to make it for a lovely meet- up with tea, coffee, scones and craic at the beautiful Killyhevlin Hotel in Enniskillen, based on the edge of Lough Erne, West Northern Ireland. It gave Alex the opportunity to chat for two hours and meet BoB/BoS for the first time.
Alex said: ‘What a lovely setting to enjoy a meet-up. The hail stones managed to stay off (albeit temporarily) which allowed us to enjoy the stunning views of Lough Erne. A huge thank you for those who were able to attend. I’m looking forward to the next meet-up already.’
A little piece of Phoenix House also came to Northern Ireland this month. Lucy Wray used it as an opportunity to see the new Belfast office, meet with existing BoB/BoS during an evening meet-up and met with other ex-Service organisations in Belfast and Portrush.
Lucy said: ‘interacting with other ex-Service organisations like Combat Stress, TBRL and Aftercare Service meant that H4H is slowly but surely creating its own footprint in NI.’
‘It was so great to have Lucy and Lawrence over,’ said Alex Baille. ‘Although it was a short visit, we were able to pack it full of useful meetings and interactions, all of which will support my role here. They really enjoyed their wee taste of NI - Tayto cheese and onion crisps included.’
