I have worked in the department for 20 years and been a HASSRA member for quite a few of those. I have been a South West Region Board Member for 3 years now. I am the lady that organises the activity weekends. The HASSRA benefits I use most are the discounted cinema and Crealy tickets, these have been fabulous to get me through the school holidays with two children. Now they are older I am looking forward to taking advantage of the SPA discounts, I love a pamper.

Angela Rowell - Bristol,

Tamsyn Wetherall - Bridgwater,

Chris Chopping - Exeter,

I have been lucky to be on the HASSRA SW Board for the last 2years.  Having been a member of HASSRA for most of the 27 years I have been in DWP I was asked if I would be interested in being on the Board.  As a member I have often used the Discounts available on the HASSRA store as well as participating in a few of the competitions and events. This year has been a very different year for members as we have been unable to participate in our normal activities, for me this has impacted my home life, office and chosen sport of Archery.  There is no doubt it has been an especially difficult year for wellbeing with Covid and I have been proud to see what our HASSRA members have done to support each other.  The way IT has been utilised innovatively and how the grants were used.  Keeping in touch and participating in online events and competitions has I am sure helped us all.
