Arthritis Care resume meetings

ARTHRITIS Care, Ballymoney Branch resumed their meetings on Wednesday night after their summer break.

Harry Meadows entertained the members with some amazing magic tricks which was enjoyed by all.

Congratulations were passed to four members who received certificates for serving continuously on the Committee.

Maisie Boyd and Susan Warke for five years service and Margaret Simpson and Marie Mitchell for 25 years.

Marie also received an award for Outstanding Achievement which was presented to her at the Annual General Meeting of Arthritis Care UK in Bristol.

Gentle exercise is now encouraged for people with arthritis and so this year the programme for our branch meetings will include Boccia, New Age Kurling and chair-based exercise to encourage people, regardless of their disabilities to exercise.

Branch meetings are held in the Millbrook Resource Centre on first Wednesday of each month from 7.30pm to 9.30pm and all people with arthritis, their carers and families will be very welcome.

Please come along and join.
