I first met Anne a number of years ago, soon after she started at Havering. During our initial conversations, it was clear that she was a great social worker and we continued to cross paths from time to time. In October 2018, Anne joined the Adoption Team I worked in and it was evident …

Dear Anne,  It has taken me some time to find the courage to acknowledge that you are no longer on this earthpane, sharing joy, motivating others and generally lifting the energy of those around you to be optimistic and postive in all that they do, think, say and act.  There is a saying that …

I see a quote yesterday ‘Kindness is like snow. It beautifies everything it covers‘  It seem very fitting that the day Anne was laid to rest it was snowing. Anne left and beautiful mark in the hearts of everyone that she met. She most defiantly left a mark in mine. It truly has been a …

Where does one start…. In the world of social work, Anne was truly the best of us.  She epitomised what any new social worker entering the profession should aim to be.  Trust me when I say, that she was not ‘easy’.  In fact. she was quite the opposite because her focus on the needs …

There were two sides to Anne.  The warm, funny, kind and generous Anne who loved to chat whenever she had a spare moment in her busy day.  There was also the feisty Anne, who I met in Child Protection Conferences I was chairing.  If she was the social worker she would always ‘keep me …
