I went round to the centre this morning and installed the trunking and back box for the extension cables to the display. I fitted the hangars on the VESA fittings on the back of the set the other day. Will just have to remove the stand that I put it on temporarily and it will be ready to offer up to the wall. I put the support bar on the wall some time ago now. It will be good to see the end of the job in sight. I'll take some pictures at some point.

Method in my madness, It's Bosom Friends monthly Coffee Morning tomorrow morning and Ash and Will may well be around so a couple of younger guys to to do the lifting and shifting. It's a big lump, not particularly heavy compared to what I used to deal with when I was in the TV trade, but it's unwealdy and the lads will make short work of the job. Tea or Coffee and buns or cakes to follow, winner, winner. :biggrin2:

Third Wednesday of the month so its the cancer support meeting at the centre tonight. Tea and biscuits and our normal confidential chat if you want session.

At our last trustees meeting we decided to try daytime support meetings in-between and in addition to our regular evening support meeting. The thinking was that there may be a few folk who would prefer coming round during the daytime rather than in the evening particularly through the winter months.

Sally and I agreed to run these as we are available and local to the centre so no real problem in opening up to see how it goes.

Our next monthly Coffee Morning on the first Saturday of the month will include a pot sale as well as what fair is available to eat and drink. The February bash will have tea (always available) and toast, crumpets or croissants - or your regular coffee and cake ☕️🍰

The pots and crockery on offer are from the shop and are offered in exchange for a donation to the group, we have lots to choose from. :smile:

Our meeting last night was well attended with a couple of new visitors to our group.

We also had a short talk from a representative of a carers support network. This has been established throughout North East Lancashire and the Ribble Valley to provide practical advice and support to those that are thrust into a caring role. The group like us, is a registered charity. One thing that was quite shocking was that the youngest carer who their group was supporting was 6 years old and the oldest on their radar 102! It is estimated that unpaid carers save the state £38 Billion per year, they need all the help they can get, I have had the T-shirt so can affirm to that.

Dead right Ian, one of the longest running scandals in social care that I am aware of.
