Merry Christmas to everyone on the site!

Thanks for your patience with the launch of the new site. Eric and the team worked really hard to get the site up and running before Christmas. We know that there is still a few kinks to iron out so please feel free to let us know about the bugs when you come across them.

I must apologise as well for being a bit quiet on the forums as of late -  I have some news for you all that will explain my absence. As of the 2nd of Jan I will be working for Jamie's Foundation 3 days a week (The Better Food Foundation) and for the other two days I will be working for the community in Italy - San Patrignano.

Next year will mark the 10th year for me working for Jamie and this new chapter in my career is a dream come true for me. Working with the students from Fifteen and being involved with the Foundation in the past has been the highlight of my time with Jamie and it always gives me great joy to see the kids from Fifteen turn their lives around.

For the last 5 years I have also been volunteering at San Patrignano and this year I set up a London based San Patrignano Association. We now have 7 young people from Sanpa living and working in London - 5 of them at Fifteen and 1 at Jamie's Italian. I am now also working with young people here in London who have come to me and expressed an interest to enter the community.

Sorry for the long post.... I just wanted to let you all know and also reassure you that I won't be far away as I will be managing the Better Food Foundation blog here on the site. Jim will be taking over the management of the community here on the site and he will be assisted by a wonderful young person called Merlin who has been working with us on the new site here in London.

More news for you in the New Year - thank you all for your support and friendship over the years - I wish you all a very Merry Christmas.....

Cheers from Danny : )
