Welcome Back Fern!

Each week we bring you a good news story from across the South West as part of our wedNEWSday articles. 

Whilst the nationwide return to netball has been put on pause for the moment, the South West Team has welcomed another team member back into the fold. Cornwall’s Netball Development Officer, Fern Noott, has returned from maternity leave and is eager to switch from nappy changing and weaning mode to all things netball development! 

“It’s been lovely to have had this past year to focus on being a new parent and to watch my little one grow. I feel incredibly lucky. I am really pleased to be back to work and I look forward to hopefully touching base with everyone soon!” says Fern. “My thanks go to Lucy Higgins for covering the role during my absence and to all of the wonderful volunteers for keeping netball going in whatever way they have been able to this past twelve months. It’s such an unusual and uncertain time at present but I can’t wait to do what I can to support the Cornwall Netball family in returning to court as and when the time is right” 

Please note, Fern continues to work part-time but her working days will now be Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Friday mornings. 

Welcome back Fern, and a big thank you to Lucy who we’re pleased to say will be part of Team South-West for a little longer as she provides support to Somerset and Dorset!
