Last Monday we had a visit from The Independence Trust. Thank you to Emma and Tom, from The Independence Trust for giving us their time. Emma and Tom talked about who The Independence Trust are, what they do and how it is making a difference to peoples lives. Emma has provided a booklet giving details of the courses available to their clients, this is on our downloads page if you would like a look or get in touch with me on our YourSpace email address or website contact form and I can email you a copy. There is also a self referral form, if you would like to become one of their clients. Complete the relevant bits and send it to the address on the form. Listening to what goes on when you become a client at The Independence Trust, it seems to me that this organisation concentrates on the development of the individual. It's all about empowering "you" to set your own goals, even though the steps towards achieving these goals may be very small, The Independence Trust will be on hand to help and support you to reach them. Sounded really positive. If you want to find out more then contact The Independence Trust or arrange to go and have a look round their venue for yourself. You will find their contact details on our Web site information page.
We have had some good news from The Barnwood Trust, regarding the Small Sparks Grant. Steve has been working really hard in obtaining this grant and has been successful in his application! This grant will enable him to organise some art activities for the group. So watch this space for more information on this soon.
Our Christmas Social has now been arranged for Monday 14th December at The Hare and Hounds Pub, Churchdown. If you are eating the table has been booked for 7pm. Or come and join us for a drink it's up to you. The menu is on the November Notice Board. All deposits need to be in by 30th Nov.
Our Mindfulness Meditation Sessions seem to be going well so hopefully this will continue on a monthly basis. Next session will be Monday 30th November.
I will be holding a meeting regarding the Groups future on Monday 23 Nov, usual time at 7pm, venue to be arranged. This will not be our usual sharing meeting but will be to look at what members think about the group and share ideas as the Group moves forward, hopefully folks will be able to attend.
Hope the week is good to you all.
