Ataxia UK East of Scotland Branch

Our next meeting (our AGM) will be held on Saturday 10 May 2014 from 1.30 - 4pm in our NEW venue - the brand-new, purpose built building housing Lasswade High School and a hub for all community events. It replaces the old Lasswade High School & Sports Centre and is adjacent to it on Eskdale Drive. We are meeting in the community room on the ground floor - turn left through the main entrance. There's plenty of parking, including 15 spaces for blue badge holders at the front. We're organising tea, coffee & biscuits ourselves. Everyone is welcome - hope to see you there! Also, we have booked a Seagull trust boat tour at the Falkirk Wheel on Saturday 21 June 2014. Meeting at 1.30pm at the Wheel and the trip lasts a couple of hours - bring a packed lunch if you wish. It's a lovely day out and gives a chance to see the wheel working at close hand. Please let Frances know asap if you'd like to attend: 0131 258 6683 - leave a message if no reply. We meet every couple of months for regular branch meetings, plus one off events such as BBQs, boat trips etc. Everyone welcome! Looking for suggestions for other social events in 2014.
