Update from Matron Sarah Morris of the JPH

Experience a New Electric Hybrid Car

Dear Friends welcome to our Newsletter. We hope that you have been enjoying the good weather and all the bank holidays.

Due to unforeseen circumstances our AGM will be postponed. It will now take place on Monday 25th July.

Matron Sarah Maurice will be our speaker at our meeting. Sarah has apologised for her absence at our last meeting. This was due to an oversight in her diary. Sarah promises to be with us this time. I am sure there will be lots of questions that we would like to ask.

Chris Stanley from the Lions club will be coming along to show us his new Hybrid Car.

We will be invited to go outside and see what we can hear of it, if anything! Chris is happy to take our comments back to the manufacturer of the car.

Our guest speaker back in March was Peter from RNIB speaking about the Digital change over.

Details are in the Meeting minutes.

The decision has been made to organise The Great Yarmouth Older People’s Olympics 2012 based on many of the activities contained within the

Ageless Opportunity directory plus any others that may be of interest to older people, that is anybody over 50. Details will be available shortly.

The sports could include, short mat bowls, green bowls, ten pin bowling and many more activities.

The RNIB are taking part in a demonstration in London on 11 May. This is to vent disabled peoples feeling against the changes to DLA and other benefits. Linda and Penny will be representing our group and lobbying our MP.

We look forward to hearing all about the day at our meeting.

I hope that you are all receiving your copy of Magpie News and that you keep up to date with all the activities that you could get involved in.

The craft classes and coffee mornings are very popular here in Yarmouth at NNAB
