My time at GATE has is coming to an end very soon, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has made this experience remarkable and welcomed me into the organisation. This experience has been amazing as I got to learn about the Gypsy and Traveller culture and through the learning we established how similar my culture was to yours. I will definitely miss the long chat and teas.

 I was surprised how long it has taken for the post matter to be resolved even though it has been nearly 5 months since the post has been stopped at Cottingley Springs and there still has not been a settlement or any type of option put forward other than collecting the mail from the post office. I hope this matter is resolved soon, and it can be frustrating to keep going to the post office to collect the mail.   

I have learnt a great deal from this placement through the members and staff which will undoubtedly help me in the future.

Thank you GATE for letting me be a part of your team.
