February at 7pm we will be meeting up for a meal at the Gurkha
Kitchen. Please phone Joy on 01595 696 491 to book a place, or email
firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday 13th February so
that we can finalise the numbers with the restaurant. There will be
a cost of £10 per person for the meal which will include a drink on
arrival, a starter and a main course.
Events diary for 2018
We have a committee meeting booked for the beginning of March, so if
you have any suggestions for events or for our summer trips, speak
to one of the committee members at the February night outing to the
Gurkha Kitchen. All suggestions and ideas are welcome.
Bingo nights at the Lerwick
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
Market House Carers Group
There is a new venue for the Market House Carers Group. The group
met at the Fjara Cafe Bar on Tuesday 6th February from 10.30 -12 and
will continue at the same time and venue on the first Tuesday of
each month. If you are a carer you are invited to join them for a
cuppa, some cake and a blether! The group is open to all unpaid
carers and everyone is welcome.
Self Help for Stroke
Selfhelp4stroke is a free self management website for anyone who has
had a stroke, and can be found at
www.Selfhelp4stroke.org. This is a free resource and the
information is displayed in video, audio and interactive formats.
Many of the resources are also downloadable.
