Overview: The October meeting was reserved for the group to catch up on business matters especially how we were going to raise awareness of our existence to the many women newly diagnosed with breast cancer that needed support and friendship through their treatments and beyond.
Calendar Girls: Denise had brought along an impressive calendar produced by the Market Deeping Breast Cancer Group which certainly highlighted their presence to other women and families in the local area and asked if we felt we could do something similar for 2019? Instead we thought given the length of time the group has been in existence we all have an accumulation of photographs which illustrate what we do and the activities and events we have and are involved in. These could provide the story of PBCSG up to the present day and highlight how we work together and with others to give support and friendship. We agreed to sort out our photos by the February 2018 meeting and to contact old members to ask if they would also forward their old photo’s to us by that date. See the newsletter for all the details...
Community Radio: Gill said she had contacted the Community Radio Station who made us so welcome in the summer to find it had ceased operating. We were hopeful of arranging with them to return on a regular basis to spread the word about PBCSG.
Hospital Stand: Gill suggested as October is Breast Cancer awareness month that PBCSG have a stand in the hospital to promote the group.
Xmas Party: Finally we discussed our annual Christmas Party.
