Well January has been and gone already. It only seems like five minutes since we were all celebrating Christmas and now we are a twelfth of the way through the year!

 

We had a great time at our Jacobs Join in December and had been having a try at some Christmas crafts in November. These went down so well that we are now going to incorporate crafts into some of our meetings at the Fire Station.

 

Although, sadly, we didn't have the opportunity to hold our annual Christmas Eve party, we were lucky enough to be gifted presents for our members children through the RockFM's Cash4Kids appeal. Hopefully we will have greater support this year and be able to reinstate our family event. If anyone is interested in getting involved with organising events, please email the Management Team.

 

Our confidential 'Coffee & Cake' sessions continued at Fleetwood Fire Station with our first meeting of 2015 on Monday 12th January. Our guest speakers were from AgeUK and the topic was 'Keeping Warm'.

 

Our next session is on Monday 9th February where we will be welcoming our guests from the Welfare Rights service. This is an ideal opportunity to ask any questions regarding your benefits and make sure you are claiming what you are entitiled to.

 

Our first Time2gether lunch was on Thursday 22nd January when we all visited the Chinese Buffet in Blackpool. February's lunch will be held at the Tramway Crown Carvery in Cleveleys on Thursday 26th.

 

We hope to see some new faces at both sessions so come along and bring a friend who 'cares'.

 

Thank you for your continued support.
