The new dates for the charity barrow at the metro center. Sat 6th July. Sat 5th October. Fri 20th December. If you could help out or spare a couple of hours please contact Angie.
Dear Members I am sure you will all agree that our Group is a great support to us all and I for one look forward to our meetings each month, not only for my own benefit but also for the help and support we give to each other. It therefore makes it even more difficult for the committee to make decisions that will disappoint our members but unfortunately the Group is in the same situation
Sadly we have had to cancel the charity barrow at the metro center, this was because we did not have enough people to help out.


Our christmas meal on Friday 14th December has been canceled. This is because the pub lost our booking and can’t fit us in. Refunds will be give for the deposits that have been taken.
