We have not yet been able to fix a place for Face to Face meetings. We’ve been offered a room, but nobody to host the meeting, so have decided to run zooms which at least will include the Highlands and islands.

We met at Mount Zion Church, in Cliviger, Burnley, and my friend helped with drinks and snacks.
One couple came, which allowed the opportunity for a more in-depth discussion. We talked about physiotherapy and plans for the future.

We had an interesting discussion about how the fund that is supposed to exist for Scots to travel to centres in England can be accessed. It seems one exits to allow those on the islands to travel within Scotland for treatment.
We have been a bit quiet on the Scotland front so I thought I should update you. There have been a few Zooms over the past months and the plan was to wait until the planned meeting of the Scottish CPG at the Holyrood parliament on 15th March.
22nd April 2023
At our November meeting last year, we had agreed to have a ‘Show and Tell’ session about mobility aids at our meeting yesterday. True to form, we did. Mobility aids were not walking sticks, but attachments for wheelchairs.
15th April 2023
It was great to be able to see everybody at our first ‘face to face’ get together since Covid. All 16 of us (including five people who hadn’t been to the Birmingham Support Group Meeting before), enjoyed a super buffet lunch and an informal chatty afternoon.
Twelve of us got together at the Orange Tree pub in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. It was good to see familiar faces as well as members that have returned after a few years. Great to catch up & spend time with HSP’rs, face to face, after a long wait.

It was great to have 16 people meet up at the Packhorse Pub on Saturday 26th November for a pre-Christmas Lunch and was really lovely to welcome four new members plus partners/friends.
