Jul 13 @ 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Amber Valley Access Group monthly meeting @ Field Terrrace Community Room

Derbyshire Carers Association AGM @ The Post Mill Centre
Jul 17 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

We would like to invite you to our Annual General Meeting.

It is hoped that if you are present you’ll find it a bit less formal than your average AGM as we are including treats such as pamper treatments information stands and a buffet too. This will be a meeting where everyone who has been involved in one way or another has the opportunity to come together and share ideas. We do have a few formalities to sort out, but we would like the bulk of the day to be made up of two main things: finding out what we’ve been up to so far, and getting a chance to think and talk about what may happen next.

Date/Venue/Time:  Monday 17th July 2017

At: The Post Mill Centre, Market Street, South Normanton, Derbyshire. DE55 2EJ

10am – (The AGM will take place at approximately 11.30am to 12pm) the event will carry on until to 3pm
If you would like to put your name down to attend or book a treatment please contact our Administration Team at Head Office on 01773 833833

We sincerely hope to see you there
