A HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE CHAIR

Dear all, happy New Year and I hope all your wishes come to fruition.

Well, a brief sit-rep as to what is happening.

Jason and I are in contact with various organisations and at this moment we will have another bank account, fingers crossed that will facilitate our funding, the credit union will still be functional but the new account will be able to move resources better.

I have had quite a few courses for which I need responses soonest, as listed below:

FIRST AID 6-hour course Saturday 27th January or Saturday 3rd February FULL NAMES ASAP END DATE WILL BE MON 15TH JAN 2018 FOR NAMES as the instructor will need to send off to Cardiff for the certificate authority.
THE COURSE WILL CONSIST OF 3X2 hour sessions and you will attain the relevant certificate, 2-hour session, 4 hours and 6 hours which obviously give you a better qualification. These dates will be confirmed by the instructor so be flexible as we may do 2-hour sessions on different days being the reason for immediate interest. MARCUS ASK CHRIS IF THOSE DATES SUIT AS WE WILL NEED TO CONFIRM THE VENUE!

SAFEGUARDING AWARENESS TRAINING: 20TH Jan, 7th Feb, 24th Feb, 15th Mar, 20th March
IT IS FREE BUT ONCE BOOKED £50 NONE ATTENDANCE. You can go to the CVSC website or call 01492534091 for further info, EITHER YOU BOOK OR INFORM ME PLEASE.

DEAF AWARENESS: This is a basic 1-2 hour awareness on how to communicate, anyone with basic sign language skills can ask about doing a BSL1 course, there is a cost but anyone on benefits will get reduced prices and the shed will assist in this.

ARABIC, WELSH, ENGLISH COURSE: Please no remarks about me being scouse! The course is centred in Colwyn Bay, We have missed to dates but they are “rolling” so please contact 01492530110 / 07756197442 or me as we could do a block booking, IT IS FREE

FINALLY: As of 1st Feb the web will have all info and contact details, we will only mail if urgent, any remaining information will be brought up at the meetings or projects.

You families and friends are welcome to participate, as there are befriending services that need help for those that cant get about and may need support which should be our primary objective, so far we have done well without funding.

I hope you all stay well and safe

Be good

Martin
