Every month. Affa Sair holds a meeting where you can have a good blether, moan, and share your experiences of living with chronic pain. The meetings are organised and run by the Admin Team of Alison, Roz, Venita and Fiona. They try to have a Guest Speaker at all the meetings but if that is not possible then the members quite happily chat among themselves, enjoy the tea, coffee and eats (usually many home bakes) and have good fun. You're guaranteed to feel a whole lot better after the meeting.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at our Craft & Claik meeting this Thursday 28th Feb! We're going to be making name badges this month, we've always been going to get around to it but unfortunately due to our conditions keep bloody forgetting🙈🙊🤣
Your welcome to take any crafts you do with you! We'll have a few other bits for you to try that our resident crafty wuman aka Mrs Fiona Bruce has planned!
I'm looking forward to learning how to crochet as she's already got me into knitting which I hadn't done for 22 years and I'm really enjoying doing it plus it's a good distraction and takes your mind off the pain for a while which is most welcome!
Any other ideas of crafts we could try would be very welcome and if you think your up to giving us a demonstration or would like to learn us new skills that would be wonderful too! - ALISON RIDDOCH
The meetings are held in Room 14 of the Alexander Graham Bell Hub at Moray College, Moray Street, Elgin IV30 1JS
Meetings start at 1:00 pm with Guest Speakers starting around 1:30 pm. You do not have to force yourself to stay for the whole meeting. You are free to come and go as you please.
There is a small donation for Coffee/Tea/Nibbles.
We also have a fun (no obligation) raffle, with wee fun prizes for £1 a strip of five tickets.
