Edward McCarthy Activities Organiser Speech AGM held at Holy Trinity Church Bickerstaffe on 19th April 2018.
“We have had a very successful year with total grants awarded of £30,600.
Our current staff team include- Anja, Phil, Iris, Emma, Ruth, Chris and Claire.
During the year we did these activities:
• Boccia/ Kurling
• Christmas party
• Carol Singing
• Coach Trips
• Computer course
• Talent Show
The Talent Show was a huge success.
We had two coach trips too, Llandudno and Blackpool. I hope to arrange a Lake District coach trip for August we have funding for the coach.
We now do bowling in two locations Wigan and Southport.
Dance is now provided by McDonald Dance. Our Music and Disco nights we run ourselves.
I would like to thank all our partner organisations who run sessions for the group.
The first short break was very popular. During the year ahead we to try basketball, pool, sailing and do another holiday this time at Castle Head.
We are going to have a Coffee morning in May and out 10th Year Anniversary Party in the summer more details to come. Our new disco is very popular.
We currently have 53 members which is a big jump from 35 when I first began in September 2016.
I hope we can continue to grow and develop and this will mean trying new sessions and ways of working.
I wish to thank all the committee for the support and all the staff for their hard work.”
