Makes sense to me. Team:Volunteers prefers two-hour shifts, so having five shifts between 10:00 and 20:00 would fit nicely. I guess we want to be available on days 0-5 - do we want to start at 10:00 on day 0 as well?

Right, so this would be one of 'us' (or someone who has done a couple of shifts already), to get the angels started and then be available via DECT? We could make that four 2.5-hour shifts, so the handover between coordinator shifts and regular shifts doesn't overlap?

OK by me (no strong preference)

Kind regards,
