Latest News. COVID 19.

Not comparing ourselves to the genuinely heroic health workers placing themselves in harm's way during the COVID 19 pandemic;- well, perhaps a little. But this is me providing stress management support for residents and staff at Forest Hill AgeWell Centre. With the proper social distancing all is well. Having said that, if anything does happen could someone please ensure my boys are raised as Collingwood supporters, not Carlton supporters as my wife would have.
