Yes a really busy and exciting place to be last month.

One major thing has been forgotten. A big thanks to @Marjo @Martin-O2 and @EmilieT for their continued help with unlocking phones. I have never seen that as part of the community managers role but they have excelled with that over the past two months.

No 'creeping' intended. Just telling it like it is. So well done to you three wink

When you stick it all together, it does look rather busy! 


And C is right. A definite hats doff to the bods who keep this place up and running!

Just a quick mention that my August reward has been credited, still awaiting September. I was under the impression they would go on together? Or maybe they are going through just August so as not to get confused.....smiling
