You may have heard on the UK news (and if you haven't, where the hell have you been) about a girl named Georgia Williams who has gone missing from Wellington in Shropshire. Although none of us know her personally, she goes to the same college as our own Jack Turner, and probably around two thirds of our friends, are also friends with her. Further, we've met her boyfriend on a few occasions, who is a great character and always kind to us. Georgia was last seen on Sunday night and West Mercia Police are (as of today) treating it as a murder investigation. We are sending all our support to Birdy and Georgia's family and friends. We are thinking of you all and we're doing what we can with our followers to help spread the word that Georgia needs to be found safe and well.
It's not my place to write pages and pages on Georgia's disappearance, but if you want to join us on the facebook campaign to help find her, go here. We would hugely appreciate it. Similarly, if you have any information regarding her whereabouts, call the police RIGHT AWAY on 0800 056 0944.
Moreover, we also heard this week of the death of the father of one of our close friends. Our hearts go out to our good friend and his girlfriend (also a close friend of ours for many years), and we are all thinking of you. You both know where we are if you need us.
I was going to write about some of the stuff we've got upcoming within the band, but that can wait for another day. For now, I want all of you remember that these are dark and difficult times we live in, but I believe that it is times like these that prove just how well we can all pull together and support each other when it matters. Please help us support our friends, it would mean a lot.
Apologies for the essay, I think I just had a lot to get off my chest today.
Stay strong and stay safe.
