Glenn Phillips, who is living with MND, has set up a new Get Together meeting for people who have MND, in the South Herts area. 

This is a new incentive and Glenn wanted to try and create a place where people with MND and their carers and partners could meet in privacy, and chat together informally in a calm and safe setting . 

The meetings have now started and the first meeting took place at Box Moor Trust centre in Hemel Hempstead. Box Moor is a great place to meet with its beautiful surrounding countryside and people are constantly saying how much they like the setting. 

The first meeting took place on December 11th last year when we had 10 people attend. There were 3 people with MND and their carers, and 4 volunteers from the branch committee. It was a hugely successful meeting and enjoyed by all. 

The second meeting has taken place, on January 8th. Again it was a runaway success - this time there were 8 attendees, 3 clients with MND and their carers, and 2 volunteers from the branch.

 In future, meetings are to be held on the first Wednesday of every month at the same venue, as follows,  
  • March 5 
  • April 2
  •  May 7 
  • June 4
  •  July 9 NOTE this meeting had to be scheduled for a week later due to commitments at Box Moor .

 All people with MND and carers, wives, husbands or any family members are most welcome to come along. We would be happy to see as many of you as are able to come. We can always help out with transport, if this is an issue Lesley Ralston can be contacted if you require help.
