Star Foster Carers Recognised

Julie Hill & Charlie Evans

Village residents Charlie Evans and Julie Hill have recently been given a long service award in recognition for 20 years as foster careers.

Julie's family, her children Nicola and Gareth and I (Helen), would like to tell them how incredibly proud we are of them and how we enjoy being a very small part of this wonderful career.

We estimate that they have had in the region of 60-70 babies, toddlers and older children through their home over the years.

There have been so many little faces it's hard to remember them all. Some have only stayed a short while, some much longer.

They prepare babies for adoption and older ones to move onto the next stage in their lives.

There are so many beautiful photos on their walls and they receive letters, cards and photos from forever families, especially at Christmas time.

In more recent years they have started to receive contact from their previous charges who are now adults, either through social media or, on occasion, a surprise visit which is wonderful for them.

Keep up the good work both of you — lots of love and admiration.
