March 2020

Meetings: Firstly, I hope you are all keeping as well as you can during this difficult time. Secondly, in view of the current situation; the monthly meetings of the Support Group will be suspended in line with Government advice on social distancing and group gatherings. Unfortunately, I cannot say when they will be resumed but I suspect that it will be well into the year. We had hoped to have our Strawberry Tea on the 20th June 2020 but in all likelihood, this will now not proceed. I will keep this month's newsletter brief therefore.

Nurses: This month's representative from the PCH specialist Care Nurse Team was Lisa. As ever Lisa reported the Team was very busy and working very hard. New cases continue to grow. I for one, especially at this time, cannot thank enough all the staff at PCH who will be working flat out.

Speaker: The Group had a very informative talk from Sue Shaw from Casting for Recovery. For those of you who have not heard of this charity, they provide an opportunity for women who have been affected by breast cancer treatment to learn the sport of fly fishing in a beautiful, natural setting to promote mental and physical healing. Just as importantly, the retreats offer an opportunity to meet new friends, exchange information, and have fun. 

For details of the dates and venues please go the the Charity's website which is countryside-alliance.org/charity/casting-for-recovery-uk-irelandrecovery-uk-ireland.

Contact: It will be strange not to see everyone next month, but if anyone wants to keep in touch please do so through our Facebook page. My email address and mobile number is at the bottom of the newsletter. Just so we do keep in touch I will, each month, get some form of Newsletter out just so we are keeping in touch and not feeling too isolated.

Stay well and keep safe. See you all soon.

Helen Saggers - PBCSG Co-ordinator.
