Celebrating the life of Sweet Enderfield

On Sunday evening, the London City team held a celebration for the life of our friend and staff member Sweet Enderfield, who died on June 23rd.

Sweet joined the team in 2014 and has been here every day since. She is known by the majority of  people who were born in the London Gateway, and subsequently helped by her.  She was also a host in several of the London City clubs and a member of our Players Tribute act.

During the service, we planted a Rose of Sharon (her real name), which will be a permanent memorial.

We know this has been a very sad weekend for many of you who knew Sweet personally, as it has been for the London Support Team.  Last night, we shared stories, whilst enjoying the  play-list made by Katty of Sweet's favourite songs.

We hope that you will take some comfort in knowing that although Sweet died tragically young,  aged just 50, she did so in her sleep, and did not suffer.

Thank you to everyone who came to the Celebration.  Thank you to the London Team who have put on such a brave face, during this most difficult of times.

Sweet would be so proud of the turn-out where so many people visited to share happy memories and kind thoughts. It means a lot to all of us.

We will send your condolences to her family.

She will be missed.

Summer begins with the Longest day

Here comes Summer!

Today is the Summer Solstice, when the North Pole is tilted closest to the Sun.

The longest days of the year are here and hopefully go with the extra daylight, there will also be some sunshine.

The Solstice marks the official start of the Summer and the season lasts until the Autumn Equinox on September 23rd.

We can enjoy 16 hours and 38 minutes of daylight, with a sunrise at 4.42am and a sunset at 9.21pm. 

Even better, for real daylight hours, look to the civil twighlight hours, when, although the sun has set, we are so close to it, that light still radiates.  For the next 7 days, expect to see bright blue skies all night as the very short perpetual twilight phenomena is visible throughout Great Britain.   Until the June 30th, we will have no real night time!

Civil twilight is a scientific term, and we define it as “the period after sunset or before sunrise ending or beginning when the sun is about 6 degrees below the horizon and during which on clear days there is enough light for ordinary outdoor occupations.”

Although we have dark winters, somehow, being light in the evenings until after 10pm, offers a significant compensation!
