November Newsletter

Hi folks

I hope you are all keeping safe and well in these difficult times, hopefully most of you will have had your 1st vaccine and possibly your 2nd .  I feel that we can now start seeing a light at the end of the tunnel for getting back to some type of normality (whatever that may be)

I am hopefully going to start up our meetings again on Monday 28th June at 12.30pm , I will distance the chairs, no tables and no refreshments.  We will just have a general catch up and then on Monday 26th July we will have our AGM.

I am glad to say the walking group can re-commence on Monday 29th March, please see below for meetings places:

            Mon 29th March –  Meet Spike Island car park 11am

            Mon 12th April  – Meeting in car park for cinema and ice rink in Widnes 11am

            Mon 19th April  – Meet Victoria Park 11am

            Mon 26th April   – Meet Runcorn Heath Park 11am

Funding

In April last year Sharon & Danny should of been partaking in a walk at Hale Park, unfortunately due to the first lockdown this event was cancelled.   Since then they have done plenty of walking which would compensate for the walk that never took place.  Thank you to the members who sponsored them. Thank you Sharon & Danny you raised £50 towards HALDS funds.

The Christmas card donations also raised £110 towards our funds, thank you to the members who donated.  

Social Events

The Osmonds Musical at Liverpool Empire – Wed 3rd Nov – I have received an e-mail from ATG tickets advising that The Osmonds Musical has been rescheduled to 7/9/2022 at 7.30pm.  I will leave the tickets booked and you can advise nearer the time if you are able to attend, otherwise money will be reimbursed to you.  This is only for people who have already booked and paid.

Carers News

Carers Emergency Plan – if you are looking after someone regularly you may worry about what would happen if you are taken ill, or are in an accident or similar emergency.  How will you be able to ensure that the person you care for will not be left without support?  The Carers Emergency Plan (CEP) is provided by the local authority and is designed to give you peace of mind in such circumstances.  The CEP will provide you and your cared for with access to rapid message handling service, 24/7.    This service is free, please contact either Halton Carers Centre for more information or direct to Adult social care on

Hospital Card – Carers who are caring for someone in hospital are entitled to open visiting.  Carers just need to tell the ward they are a carer and they will issue a card for open visiting.  This service is only available at Halton & Warrington Hospitals

Take care and stay safe
