If you need anything while I'm out of the office, you can contact Jo.

If you need anything while I'm away, please contact Jo.

I'm out of the office until 22nd June 2021

I've learned to fly by closing my eyes and saying the magic words, so I'll be out of the office until Tuesday, cruising the skies.

If you need anything while I'm away, please contact Jo.
