Newport FAN Group

on Thursday, 25th February, 2010

The Newport FAN Group started in August 2009 and now has more than 15 members who attend the group on a regular basis. The group meets every Friday 12noon – 1pm at The SHARE Centre, Stow Hill.

Patrick Sullivan, who has been attending the group since September said ‘I have personally found the group a real eye opener as I have learned so much about other cultures and countries. After all, where else would you meet a Tibetan Monk, the Green Party Parliamentary Candidate for Newport West and an ex-Probation Officer all in one day!’

Kath Jones, who has been attending since the group started said ‘I find the group interesting, its somewhere for me to go; otherwise I would just be stuck in the house. I look forward to coming to the group every week and it has also improved my confidence.’

Would you like to attend the Newport Group? You would be very welcome! Please contact 07880 630 553 if you would like more information about the meeting.
