It sounds like you had a fabulous day with Katie and the Barnwood team seeing old friends and meeting new ones. You always write beautiful reports which share the atmosphere of every event you visit. Hope to see you very soon.

I'm so so happy you had such a wonderful day and I'm looking forward to hopefully taking part in much more, I'm currently learning how to swim which helps my disability but I'm also on the lookout for some locally based groups in and around the Matson GL4 4BA area so i can use my mobility scooter to get to places so reading about your fab day has given me more hope and please keep in touch thank you for listening xxx

Thanks for sharing this Sally. Having a 'community power' event gives such a strong message to others about whats possible when people come together. I'm glad you had fun, despite the rain!

Sorry for late showing interest with your writing poetry for therapy, have had to wait for a new charger for my tablet. I am very keen with writing poetry and have had some published. Writing is very therapeutic and love to meet and get some more of my poetry and stories into print. A good way to express ourselves. Look forward to meeting you.

A couple of years a go I had cancer and had to have a full hysterectomy, appendix and other things removed. I was rushed to Stroud, then onto Gloucester and transferred to Cheltenham for my major surgery. All staff were marvellous.
