All Group Meetings

All Group Meetings are SUSPENDED until further notice. This is due to insurance and safety reasons. Before we return to being able to hold meetings we have some administration work to do covering social distancing and infection control measures amongst other things so it looks like our next group meeting might be a distance away. 

Group News

Group chair Alison was nominated for, and received a long service award at the recent Inspire Awards. These are usually held during the Annual Volunteers Conference, however due to the coronavirus these awards were held via a Zoom meeting in June. Information on all the winners  from the Eastern and Midlands region is available on request.

We also have relaunched our group Facebook page due to the previous moderator standing down.

In the Communty - Coronavirus

Currently we have no events booked in our diary and this looks to continue until the lockdown is fully lifted. We are happy to start taking booking for 2021 with the proviso that they might still be postponed if the Coronavirus situation changes. 

Raising Awareness

Alison has been on BBC Radio CW in both June and July talking about diabetes and raising awareness of the good work Diabetes UK does, and promoting the group.
