Lucy’s departure

Dear Wellgrove Riders

As many of you are already aware, Lucy has decided after many years to leave Wellgrove and move onto a horse job that does not require teaching. I am sure many of you will miss her and will want to wish her well in her new job. Lucy’s last working day will be Saturday 4th April, so we will unfortunately need to make a few changes to lesson structures to cope with being one short for a while. Since four weeks is not really long enough to find a suitable replacement that will work in our team, we have come up with a few solutions that I hope will mean that not too many people are badly affected by the change.

Saturday morning lessons will be covered for now by Debra Richmond who has worked with us before and has kindly agreed to cover the work short term, so lessons 9am-1pm will remain unchanged. After 1pm, Emma will be taking over the teaching of both her clients and Lucy’s and will contact everyone separately to discuss ongoing changes. We hope that we will be able to do this causing as little disruption to all the clients as possible and apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. Please note that we do have a few weeknight spaces available, so please let us know if a day change may suit you better. Weeknight lessons are not severely disrupted but we will be cancelling Lucy’s Friday after school sessions and again Emma will contact everyone directly to discuss an alternative.

We can only thank everyone in advance for their understanding and I am sure that everything can run as smoothly as possible, once the routines are settled again.

Yours sincerely

Emma Whittaker and all at Wellgrove

Important notice – PLEASE READ

Today my house was broken into, and all of the takings for the yard were taken, along with my paperwork. Luckily nothing of sentimental value was taken.

Please could everyone who wrote a cheque between last Wednesday 15 October and Monday 20 October cancel it and let me know ASAP so I can begin to get everything back in order.
