Our wonderful boss is leaving today.

Sharon has been with us for a good number of years on the Online Community, making it what it is today - a place of safety where anyone with or caring for someone with any arthritis or MSK condition can come to read, be supported and even to relax, knowing they are in a good place with lots of others just like them in so many ways.

Sharon has fought hard to make this community peer led - where you pick the topic and the content.

We will miss her so much, and I know you will want to wish her all the best in her retirement too.

    So sorry to hear you’re leaving Sharon, but I hope your new pastures will be enjoyable and rewarding, and that they value you as much as we have. This is one of the kindest, most helpful, friendly and supportive forums I’ve encountered, and helped me through some tricky stuff. Thanks for your input to make it that way.

    all the best, LM xxx

    I'm sorry to read this. Sharon, I've always found you kind and helpful whenever I've contacted you. I hope that life after Versus Arthritis will be good to you. Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year.

    P.S. We'll still let you post😁

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    I will miss your lovely comments Sharon, but you deserve your retirement albeit (I am sure ) 'early'.

    Take care enjoy your family and cat (I think you have a 😻) .

    I very much hope you will pop by once in a while to see us you will be sorely missed here😕

    I am quite upset to see you go Sharon I for one will miss the support you have given to us moderators and to the community in general.

    Having said that you need to put yourself and your own family first sometimes.

    Enjoy your retirement and maybe come back one day as a member!!!!

    Love and best wishes
