LADIES' GROUP JUNE MEETING

June, our Chairman, welcomed members and guests with prayer and a
reading and we said The Lord’s Prayer together. She read out the
various activities for the coming weeks which should keep us all busy!
She talked about Friendship Groups and if anyone was interested to see
her for more information.
June then introduced our speaker, Liz Jermy, to talk about Fostering.
Liz told us that she had been involved with fostering since she was very
young as her mother took children or young people into her house giving
them somewhere safe to live. She told us of the forms of Fostering
which are Emergency, Short Term, Respite Breaks, Special Needs,
Remand fostering, Asylum Seeking fostering, long term and many other
types. She explained and discussed these many types of fostering
which made us all think and realise what was involved. A task not for
the many. Her own family has fostered many children and she spoke of
the joy of an extended family. There were interested questions and we
very much enjoyed her talk.
Our July meeting on Monday, 1 st July will take the form of afternoon tea
at The Orangery at Derwen College eating at 3 p.m. at a cost of £8.25.
Can you please ensure that Mair Bowen, our Treasurer, has been paid
before the meal.

We are always pleased to welcome new members to our monthly meetings and if you would like further information please contact Ann Sagar telephone 01691657903 or e mail ann_sagar@btinternet.com.
