Hello World!

Hey all!

Today is an exciting day at SASS as we have decided to re-launch our blog!  Every now and then we’ll post something, anything.  It could be an update about what we have going on at the centre. It could be sharing an interesting article we read somewhere else.  It could be just a small anecdote.  It may make you cry, or maybe it will make you laugh.  We hope most that we will make you think!  Thanks for reading, we hope you like it!

Here’s to good things to come!
