Residential in Wales

Thanks to the Co-Op Community Fund in Beeston we enjoyed four days at Ty Glyn Davis Trust in Wales in the October half term. Everyone enjoyed this wonderful experience, especially the Halloween party.


Approximately 70 people attended the BAFF AGM, chaired by our new chairman Norman Campbell. Our guest speaker Kath Lindley spoke about the new Learning Disability Strategy which everyone participated in. Afterwards everyone enjoyed a performance by Ginger Cat Company and danced to the Skyfallers.
