Thursday 26th April at 7pm we are looking forward to having another musical evening, this time with the Mandolin Band who are coming along to play for us at the Lerwick Baptist Church at Quoys. There will be the usual tea/coffee and homebakes to follow. Please note this is on the 26th April and NOT the 19th April.

Fundraising event in Whalsay
On Sunday 6th May a Sunday Teas fundraiser is being organised at the Symbister Public Hall in Whalsay, to raise money for the Shetland Stroke Support Group. There will be various stalls and a raffle with some great prizes, including a trip to Aberdeen donated by Northlink including car and cabin for two people, and lots of other great prizes. There will of course be the usual delicious spread with tea and fancies etc. available at the Hall. 

The Stroke Support group will having be an information stall with leaflets on stroke and stroke prevention as well as information about the Shetland Stroke Support Group. If anyone wants to travel up to Whalsay and back that day be sure to book places on the ferry in plenty time, since there are less ferry sailings on a Sunday.

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

Market House Carers Group at Fjara
The Market House Carers Group now meet at the Fjara Cafe Bar on the first Tuesday of each month from 10.30 – 12.00. 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.

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.
