Following a discussion one evening during the January Sauze d'Oulx holiday, we have had a good response to our request for completing the Skills Questionnaire. We now have received a total of 35 responses, with 20 being contributed during the holiday.
There have been a number of interesting suggestions and offers of help. These are being collated and will be discussed at the next Committee meeting. Respondents have been supportive of the new directions that the Committee has been flagging up for developing the Club and in several cases have offered to help.
We have this week had confirmation that we will receive a £1250 grant from Rochdale’s Link4Life healthy living body. This will be to support a new SCOM initiative with the WEA anChill Factore to run a beginners' course for young British Asian women; and three of our members have kindly agreed to provide support as mentors for this group.
We are still keen to have more responses to the questionnaire - contact me if you have lost your copy (supplied with the last Newsletter) or respond by filling in the online form, here.
