Dates for your diary


Could we please remind everyone to give us a week's notice of their intention to come to the meal.
If a lunch is booked by a member and they do not turn up without canceling at least 24 hours prior, they will receive a bill for the full amount of the lunch.
This is necessary as there have been as many as eight people book and not attend. The branch have to pay for those meals . . . . Eight meals at eleven pounds each =

If any members have enjoyed an eating out experience it would be nice to share that with members of the branch at a monthly social. Some considerations before we can book a new venue. It must be accessible, have plenty of parking, good accessible toilet facilities and reasonable pricing. If a venue meet these criteria, please let Mike and Theresa know.

Consessions on Island Days out.

People Matter IW have created a list of Island attractions that have consessions for disabled people and carers.
You can view the list by clicking the days out link . It will open a brochure in a new window.


Something that should be "Whats on" all the time, is to get out and enjoy the beautiful Island. To make the most of what we have on our doorsteps, I have started the ball rolling by listing some of my favorite walks and picnic places. The list covers walks for people in wheelchairs through to those where legs are essential. I would stress, it is just a starter list of some walks that I enjoy.

Please - email me with your suggestions for special places, walks and picnics and I'll include them on the map
