Hi all,

We know that some of you have clocked it already <hands out deer stalkers> but we thought we would have an official thread to announce with sad hearts that we have to bid farewell to the wonder that is HelenMumsnet

For those of you who don't know where have you been? Helen has headed up the MN Community team for several years now and she is orf to pastures new.

Aside from supplying MNHQ with plenty of [cake] and [gin], she has worked tirelessly on many many elements of Mumsnet over the years to help shape it into the site we see today thanks .

She has trained many of us and been one of the kindest and most supportive colleagues it's possible to have!

So please join us in raising a glass wine to the lovely HelenMumsnet - we will miss you and we wish you the very very best in your new job.

p.s Please don't troll us, you know too much wink

Ode to HelenMumsnet by OliviaMumsnet

A blue sad face is not enough to describe our feeling
The news that Helen's leaving HQ has left us all reeling.
We wish her all the very best in her new endeavour.
We're sure her new employers know that she's not just clever,
Her long list of skills is wonderfully impressive,
Though she plays it down, for she's discreet and not excessive.
When (wo)manning the ship she maintained perfect control,
Hunting out with precision every sock puppet, perv or troll.
She is generous to a fault, in knowledge, care and time,
Her replies on Site Stuff threads verged from brilliant to sublime.
A discerning modern woman, she don't believe the hype,
Though she's regularly <boggled> at the sentences she has had to type.
The Mumsnetters will miss her as off she fucks to pastures new
And all of us at the Towers will miss her smile and bossy emails too.
