AGMs & Cream Teas

By offering Cream Teas with our AGM we had seen an increase in attendance and popularity, attracting more parents and interested people than the usual AGM.  We had for years met in differing venues :- Greenacres School, Lanterns and Littleton Memorial Hall and a couple of times at the fully accessible home of Nicki Wade, a long standing Executive Member,  where we were able to welcome parents who had been helped by us but St Barnabas Church at Weeke enables more to attend.

Each year speakers had been invited to talk on various topics such as : –

  • Hampshire Riding Therapy
  • Canine Partners
  • The Rainbow Centre for Conductive Education (for children and adults with Neurological conditions).
  • Face to Face – Befrienders Scheme run by KIDS
  • Race Runners” – a future paralympic sport?

This year we’re delighted to say our AGM at  St. Barnabas Church was a great success-“Celebrating Achievements”   proved a popular topic.  Beforehand we received articles & photos from adults and families with cerebral palsy that provided an interesting and inspiring display.   More arrived on the day listing the achievements of Amelia Florence, Barry Ryan, Marlon Tucker, Nick Kimber, Tiernan Wise and Clare Cheesman.

Everyone enjoyed the excellent cakes with plenty of tea & coffee in a friendly  atmosphere  and the children’s playroom meant they too could also have fun.     A report-back on the day is available from the Secretary.
