May update

on Friday, 21st May, 2010

Here we are in May. We have been visiting outside groups! Swansea FAN Group had a very interesting meeting last week. We all talked about – what we would do if there were no barriers in the way! It was a lovely day to go to Swansea and it is such a lovely town. Many who visit the Swansea FAN walk 10 minutes across the road to the lovely beach on the sea front. Ebbw Vale FAN is also a fun trip! On Monday 10th May they came to the IKEA FAN Group and everyone enjoyed breakfast first and the FAN Meeting afterwards! We had reports that Leicester FAN Groups have started. We hope they will grow and be a real resource to the community. A once monthly FAN Meeting started in Bristol this week. We heard from one of our FAN Group Reps who went along – that it was a successful first meeting – so good luck to them!
