Recent Open Day & New Chairperson

Recent Open Day & New Chairperson

The recent open day in Thornliebank Parish Church, was another successful event. It was very well attended and there was lots of diabetes products to see and talk about with the company reps. There was also a nice change with the addittion of various stalls, and we must thank them all for coming along to take part in the day. There was everything from Preserves to Party Light, so something for everyone.

It was a day tinged with a bit of sadness too. Collette Foord, stepped down as group Chairperson (through ill health) after a period of 10 years at the helm. Collette has driven the group forward since day one and and has acheived so much in the her time, she will be greatly missed. It was nice to see so many people turn up to show her their support. It was noted by many that nobody from Diabetes Scotland was there...

After a short few words from Collette, she stepped down and handed over to Vikki Kitson, who was delighted to take on the role as chair.
