Oreo Andrews

Oreo really struggles with being left on his own, so occasionally he joins his mom at the Centre. Oreo is also from South Africa and was rescued off the streets at five weeks old. He loves children and long walks but has lots of sensory woes. He is always up for a pat and loves meeting all the people here at the Centre.

Angie O’Shea

I am a friendly, hard working person who enjoys family time, socialising, running and reading. I have two teenage boys who keep me very happy (mostly!) busy and driven. Previously to working at the Beaulieu Community Centre, I worked in education for 9 years. I was mainly in a Primary school, with the last 2 years being at a pre-school. I love being around children and mostly helping those more vulnerable to achieve their best. This experience has taught me many personal values as well as developing professional skills. I enjoy working as part of a team, being organised and building something that helps the community where everyone feels welcome and safe to thrive. I am excited about the future for the Centre, developing relationships with Regular Hirers, meeting new people and being part of new initiatives and projects.

I'm Suzy, one of the Centre Administrators. I live locally with my family - and maybe one day a dog too! It's been wonderful getting to know the local community. Seeing the passion and determination of our hirers at the hall is wonderful. From the services they offer, the commitment they bring and the community they support. Plus families celebrating and other community outreach projects. It's wonderful to see and be a part of.

I am thrilled to be part of this amazing community and have high ambitions for running more community driven events — not just for toddlers, but for our teens, moms, dads, and grandparents. I have worked in various roles thorughout my career, but one that brings me joy is working alongside people. I value the importance of connection within society, especially with the pace of life at present and all the struggles so many are facing. I come from sunny South Africa and have enjoyed living in Chelmsford for the past 6 years. MY work experience ranges from Office Manager to Personal Assistant to Events Coordinator. What drives me the most, especially over the last few years, is that "there's always a way!" I believe this to be true. I hope to assist in not only serving this wonderful new community but to continue being a part of its unity.
