Andy Hodge Leaving

Commonside Staff

As some of you may know, Andy Hodge will be leaving Commonside this month after more than a decade of what started as a ‘temporary job’ at the Pollards Hill Community Association. Together we have been through some major and minor ups and downs and held the good ship Commonside on course through some very choppy waters. He has been a stalwart at the Commonside Trust with a stock of curious tales and a very kind heart. None of us know anyone with such a rich knowledge of local history, jokes, facilities management and personal contacts and he will be sorely missed.

To mark his departure we are holding a party here at the Commonside Trust, starting in the afternoon of 19th December and finishing sometime in the evening.

You are all very welcome to call in to the New Horizon Centre any time from 2pm onwards to say goodbye and wish Andy well.

Please do pass on this invitation to anyone who has known and worked with Andy in Merton over the years.
There are so many I am not sure where to start.

Best Wishes

Naomi Martin
Director
Commonside Trust
