to return a piece of equipment that we had borrowed temporarily. Mrs Wohda Sharif who is also the sign languages specialist has looked after my occasional small requests for temporary use of equipment with a great deal of patience. As today is International Women’s Day – it was nice to photo Mrs Wohda at her desk.
