NOT FORGETTING .... the wonderful 1950s UKULELE Band playing live from 11am.

POKESDOWN COUNCILLORS In case you are the only one who doesn’t know, the names of Pokesdown’s three councillors are: Cllr Andy Jones, andy.jones@bournemouth.gov.uk  Cllr Gina Machin gina.machin@bournemouth.gov.uk and Cllr Christopher Rochesterchristopher.rochester@bournemouth.gov.uk. 

You may have recognised the name Andy Jones who was of course P.C. Forum’s Secretary, unfortunately, because we are an a-political forum (not affiliated to any one party) Andy has had to resign as P.C. Forum’s Secretary.Fortunately Rev Dwayne Morgan MCC has stepped into Andy’s shoes and is our new Secretary.  As you know we hold our Residents Meetings at MCC, Hannington Road, which has worked out rather well and brings me nicely into:   

OUR NEXT RESIDENTS MEETING As a result of Andy’s departure, we had to postpone our May 21st meeting, so our next residents meeting is now on Thursday June 18th.   Meeting starts 7.30 Tea & Coffee 7.00 MCC, Hannington Road, Pokesdown. 

SPEAKERS As well as PC Iain Fryett and possibly Insp Alan Setchell, Lynn the Tiler will be showing us some of Bournemouth’s old tiles.Sally Nevitt, Development Worker for PRAMA, based at Immanuel Church, Southbourne Road will be giving a short talk on how she can help you as a Carer. If you are a Carer or know of someone who would like to meet others in similar circumstance, bring them along to our meeting to meet Sally for dates and times. I myself attend Sally’s coffee and biscuit chats and know what a great relief it is to speak to others dealing with the same problems as yourself. If you are also struggling with who to contact for professional advice in the council, Sally can give you guidance. If you have questions about your care and support, or if the person you help lives in Bournemouth, please contact : Bournemouth Care Direct, Telephone 01020 454979 Minicom for deaf or hard of hearing: 01202 454975Website: http:/www.bournemouth.gov.uk Email: caredirect@bournemouth.gov.uk In person: Bournemouth Care Direct, Customer Service Centre, Town Hall, St. Stephens Road, BH2 6EB
