                             April 2009 Newsletter
Hello Everyone,


I hope this newsletter finds you all well! The newsletters’ will now all appear on the
website (as above). This is an excellent facility which allows you to check on current
events etc as I’m sure we’ve all managed to lose our newsletters at least once. We
have Trevor (Wendy’s son in law) to thank for the ‘new look website’, do have a look
and take advantage of the information available for you.

Please remember to let me know if you change address, phone number or email
address and I will update our records accordingly so that you may continue to receive
up to date information. If you have any queries in relation to anything in the
newsletter don’t hesitate in giving me a call.

I would like to thank Alison Mohammed for organising our bowling trip in February
we all had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Also thanks to Denise Walker for organising
The Fun Day in March, the weather disrupted the day but she still managed to raise
£404. Well Done!

Annual AGM - 20th May 2009 at 7pm Blatchington Court Trust
We would like to invite you to our annual AGM, there is a pub over the road so we
may pop in for a meal after. If you would be interested in coming for the meal please
advise Wendy or myself as we may need to advise the pub if there is a large number
attending. It would be great to see as many of you as possible.

I am attaching reply slips for our next few events, could I please ask that you ensure
you reply to the organiser responsible for that event and make a note of their mobile
number in case you are delayed on your journey etc.

the next newsletter with a reply slip.

Thursday 19th November will be our skittles evening, we do not have anyone to
organise this event at the moment. If you feel you are able to do this could you
please contact either myself on 01293 440064 or Wendy on 01273 832267. Full

Please note all the tickets have now gone for our trip to the Hawth for The Christmas
Pantomime.

If you would like to come to an event and are struggling to afford it, or have any other
problems please don’t hesitate to ring any trustee in confidence. We really don’t want
anyone to miss out, we are here as a support group for everyone within Look Sussex.

We still have available dates for the caravan this year so if you would like to use it
could you give Wendy a call on 01273 832267. Unfortunately the summer holidays

Registered Charity No: 1105485
and October half term are taken but it is available for long weekends also. Again I am
sure that there are quite a few parents who have children under school age who could
benefit from using the caravan out of school holidays.

The next coffee morning at Blatchington Court Trust will be on Friday 1st May 10-
12am. If there is anybody who would like to come who has not attended before or if
you have any queries please ring Wendy on 01273 832267.

Tonya Jolley has kindly forwarded on the following information which you may find
useful.
My daughter Derren is 13 and at mainstream secondary school, she has a disabled bus
pass which she can only use after 9am. But the school day starts at 8.20am, so I
looked on the www.direct.gov.uk web site and found that children with special needs
can get a school bus pass which they can use before 9am.You have to apply to your
local council and it would run in addition to the disabled bus pass.

If you have any information you would like to share please feel free to contact me.
Look forward to seeing you all soon.

Kind Regards

Gayle
