Planned events:


Thursday 18th January  at 7pm  we have organised a Music night at Quoys with some very talented you musicians coming along to entertain us on the fiddle and accordion. There will be the usual tea/coffee and homebakes afterwards with plenty time to catch up and chat.


Bingo nights at the Lerwick Legion
We have received an invitation to join in the Bingo nights which are held at the Lerwick Legion on Monday evenings, starting at 7.30pm. The invitation says that the Legion has suitable access for wheelchairs via a ramp at the front door. The Legion committee would like me to pass on to the group that anyone affected by stroke is welcome to go along, and carers are also very welcome. Somebody will be available to sign people in, so you don’t need to be a member to attend. The sessions runs nearly every Monday throughout the year. If carers are keen to attend and have somebody who can sit with their relative if they don’t want to go, a family member or a Crossroads carer for example, then it might be an opportunity for them to get out and socialise. There will be no session on Monday 29th January due to Up Helly Aa


Self Help for Stroke website
