Here is an invite from Jo for the next get together.

Hello everyone, 

I hope you are all doing okay ish. It was great at the Jan get together to welcome 3 new people. 

At the Jan meet up we discussed a plan for 2014! We decided that we would change the regular pub meet up to a Monday evening instead of a Tuesday. This wont start until May 19th. March will be on the Tuesday 18th. I know this may not suit everyone but we give it ago. We also decided to change the venue. We will now meet at The Longwall (Beefeater) Garsington Road, Oxford OX4 2JZ. We will also give this ago and if it doesn’t work then we can think again.

The plan for the February get together is to go for a meal at The Prince of Wales 60 Barrow Road, Shippon (near Abingdon) OX13 6JQ. All the family, friends and dogs are very welcome . This will either be Saturday 22nd or Sunday 23rd at lunch time. If you can please let me know whether you can make it and which day suits you best as soon as possible so I can let the pub know.
Take care. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Jo xx

As of Monday 5th February a non-refundable booking fee of £5 has been introduced for all therapies including oxygen.  This has been introduced due to an increased problem with people cancelling appointments at the last minute.  Therapists still have to be paid and volunteers for oxygen therapy come in especially.  
If you are more than 15 minutes late for any appointment the full donation will be requested.  The Committee reserve the right to request a full donation for missed appointments although discretion can be used in the case of genuine difficulty in attending.
Diary bookings
A reminder – the policy for appointment bookings is up to 6 weeks in advance which ties in with 6 weekly foot-care appointments.  Some sessions have limited availability, please share.  If a favoured time is requested by more than one person, please alternate your booking over the 6 weeks to give each other the benefit.  Similarly, double sessions may be reduced to single to accommodate more peoples needs.
If you have any questions please speak to the Centre Manager.
