Having held a trial Zoom meeting at the end of August which went reasonably well, our next group meeting the AGM will be held over Zoom on Monday 19th October from 7-9 pm. Anyone wishing to join us must first register with Alison. Details of the meeting will be sent out nearer the time. 

Some Sad News,

It is with deep sadness that we have to report the recent passing away of one of our most active group members Dennis Cooper on the 17th August following a short illness. Our deepest sympathy goes to his wife Jill and all the family. 

In the Communty 

We were contacted by Simply Gym at Cannon Park as they wanted to hold a bucket collection in memory of one of their members who recently passed away. Over 4 weeks they collected a total of £ 153.37. We would like to say a big Thank you to all your members for their generosity.

Alison has been contacted by a Coventry GP and asked to help with improving diabetes care in care homes. This is a national requirement so we will see how things go.
