My idea behind it is simple, we have a tough job which gets ever busier with little time to reflect. We attend a wide variety of jobs all stressful in their own way. We have an ever changing workforce and for newer staff in reserve, who don’t have a permanent base, it’s hard to form friendships, which is definitely something we need in this environment.

My daughter is about to qualify as a paramedic aged just 20, so like many she comes straight from education in to a very responsible role. I want there to be the very best support possible for her, and that is one of my many drives behind rekindle. My partner is a senior paramedic and we both love our jobs, part of this I believe is linked to the support we are able to give each other. So if I can help create that support for everyone I work with then I shall be happy.

We hold a rekindle event most months, giving people the chance to get together away from work and get to really know each other which strengthens working relationships. It’s all about having fun and relaxing in good company.

This year we have had more fun than ever, and still seeing new faces joining in the adventures. In May we went to Battlefield Live in Knutsford, this has been one of my favourite activities yet, all dressed in camouflage with face paints to add to the effect, we battled it out with laser guns all played outdoors in beautiful Cheshire countryside. A really good team building day. We have been bowling, had a family BBQ, enjoyed walks in the great outdoors and as always spent quality time with our friends and colleagues.

July saw our annual camping trip now entitled “Kindlefest”. A two night camp near Delamere Forest which is fun from start to end and utterly exhausting. We took part in loads of sporting challenges to include, archery, badminton, darts, and rounder’s. This bought together staff who have moved on to new areas, friends who have started a new career, nursing staff, students and loads of road staff. We were blessed with mostly sunshine with the odd down pour to test our strength.

We want everyone to get involved, we have a good following of dogs and toddlers on our walks and encourage family involvement with everyone welcome.
