A fond farewell to Philippa
Philippa will be familiar to hundreds of families who have attended our weigh and stay and baby massage sessions. More recently Philippa has been a familiar face at the Southdown baby group.
Philippa brought a wealth of knowledge, expertise and fun to the team as well as being a warm and caring person. The team has benefitted from Philippa’s vast knowledge, particularly in the fields of immunology and nutrition.
Until Philippa told me, I was totally unaware that calories don’t count if you eat standing up. This is a children’s centre secret so please don’t share it, though for some strange reason it doesn’t seem to work for me. On reflection, perhaps that was the fun, not the expertise! We are very sad to see Philippa go but are also delighted that she has realised one of her ambitions, namely to be the owner of an NHS staff lanyard. She has moved to the NHS immunisation team and their gain is very much our loss.
Please join the team in sending Philippa our best wishes and many thanks for the great contribution she has made in supporting families. Good luck Philippa.
