for your diary
Could we please remind everyone to give us a week's notice of
their intention to come to the meal.
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 =
EIGHTY EIGHT POUNDS FROM BRANCH FUNDS!
MIKE AND TERESA!
of the coordinating team are aware how important it is for members
to have a change of scenery, socialize and meet people. Both
people living with MS and their carers and people around them
are seen to enjoy the socials and gain some feel good factor
from attending. We're told that loneliness is as bad for health
as smoking fifteen cigarettes a day. That's why we consider
social activity to be important enough to warrant subsidizing
Mike and Teresa have been organizing our monthly socials for
several years now and done so most successfully. Thanks to both
of them. They now want to hand over to a new 'social organizer'.
They will arrange socials until the end of 2018 and then we
need a new volunteer to take on the role. Mike and Teresa are
willing to share the duties to enable someone new to learn what
is needed. If you feel you could enjoy the job, talk to anyone
from the committee or Mike and Teresa. There is no need to be
a committee member to carry out the duties but whoever takes
it on would be welcome to join the coordinating team. The coordinating
team would give their full
support and help to the new social organizer

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