FOREWORD
So much has happened within the Service since our Summer edition that it has been a struggle to fit everything in to these pages of Hot News.
From large-scale incidents to multiple reassurance campaigns and community projects, our staff and volunteers have been working tirelessly to achieve fantastic results across a range of disciplines.
There has also been a number of worthwhile Commendations awarded to those who have gone the extra mile, including the Service as a whole. MFRA was highly commended at the National Positive Practice Mental Health Awards for its proactive work on mental well-being. Read all about it on page 15.
As always, we love to hear your news, successes and stories so keep sending them through for inclusion in the next edition of Hot News.
