HDA Bristol branch are teaming up with families in Weston Super Mare to create a community of people in the area affected by HD. It is apparent to us that the families in and around Weston are a little isolated from The Bristol Branch so we would like to support them to re-create what we have up the M5!
For now, this will be a separate arm of The Bristol branch that meets together monthly either for a drink in the local or events. We will also try to bring the 2 groups together a few times a year for joint events. We are already looking at fish and chips in Weston in July and the next bowling event where the 2 groups come head to head towards the end of the year!
All of the Weston news and events will appear here and we will start to populate the events and dates over the coming weeks and months. Anyone from Weston, you are always welcome to join us on our main diary events and I would like to see some of the Bristol guys coming down to make friends with you too!
Where this ends up will depend completely on the success of what we are doing over the next few months and weeks. If we have a need, we will support this 100%. My vision is one of 2 things, we either help Weston to develop until they have enough people and support to run as their own branch or the Bristol Branch grows so much that we meet in the middle!
Thank you all for your support and I look forward to working with you over the coming months.
