We would like,therefore, to invite those in the community who have an equal interest in meeting this need bycoming together and discussing what options there may be to bring about some refuge in the citythat will supply basic housing needs in these circumstances on a regular basis.Therefore, we are looking towards a better and more sustainable solution to this, once we havethe views of those, like you, who can make a real difference in the future.Thus, we would like to host a forum for discussion during an evening in September, when we canshare the findings of our first research. Please would you let us know if you will be available to comealong to our offices on Thursday 8th September at 7.30pm or send another person who wouldrepresent your concerns? We have invited a director of Boaz Trust who has a lot of experience inthis field to join us.Yours sincerely, Patricia Baxter Sheila Boddington Patricia Baxter (Mrs) Sheila Boddington Project support Worker Volunteer
