Future Meetings

The next meeting of the group is now cancelled.  Our planned Saturday 4th April  2020 will not  proceed.

After consultation with medical professionals and other members, we have reluctantly decided to cancel April 4th meeting We expect advice regarding public meetings to probably discourage such meetings by this date. Also, some of our members are in the high risk categories, so we feel it is better to be on the side of caution.

The next meeting date is set as July 4th. And we hope that we will be able to meet on this date, but we will review this nearer to the time.

We will be encouraging all members to reach out and increase their communication directly to other members (if they have opted in to our member 2 member network), and we will of course update the website and email our members throughout this period of no group meetings.

Other Dates for 2020 are :-     Sat 4th July,  Sat 5th Sept, Sat 24th Oct, Sat 5th Dec

Whenever we have set a next meeting date or dates for any events, they will appear here on this page. 

Members may attend with friends or family, and non members may attend if they would like to come and meet “our group” before deciding to join. 

It is important that non members always contact the support group before attending please, so we can be ready to greet you and ensure we give you the best experience as a guest – but you are most welcome to come and say hello. [Members already advise on their own attendance and any guests via email and phone]
