* About the last Thursday’s musical programme, when over 350 members collected tickets and only 300 turned up. Thus we had to order unnecessarily food that was extra and cost Kendra quite a sum.  He requested that members must co-operate in future and only book if they are sure that they will attend.
* All members using Dial a Ride are requested to sit on the chairs near the Hall entrance after lunch, so that when their carers arrive to collect them, they do not disturb our programmes and go quietly out.  Our programmes are being disturbed lately every time their transport arrives to pick them up.

Our member – Rajnikant Sheth informed members about the necessity of having Smoke Alarms in your homes.  He said that if you ring the Fire Brigade in your area, they will come and fit alarms free of charge.  He had the contacts of :
