Dear Members

Hi all and here we are in what is now (I hope) flaming June. As I write this we are still getting plenty of rain and the odd glimmer of summer, so roll on those warm days when we can start moaning it is too hot and it will be gone in a flash.

Groups continue to do well and I hope you get to enjoy being outside, if appropriate to your group. Tai Chi will be I know.

If anyone has an idea to start a new group, then do please let me know on We now have our new guidelines for Group Leaders, which is particularly useful for this purpose and has been produced to assist our G.L's, both current and new, in keeping up to date with data protection which everyone should be aware of, as well as our Beacon and IT systems. A big thank you to Rosemary (Secretary) & David (IT) for pulling this together. If you have not got a copy from the Spring Lunch, please let me know if you would like one.
