Greetings to our followers

Good AfternoonWe, Committee, hope that you all remain in good health and are keeping safe.
To date we have not received any recommendations from National Office for a proposed return, or indeed any encouragement from the Government.
So we remain as we are.
Most of our Group Leaders are in constant touch with their members, and all, I believe, are enjoying that contact.
We are trying to keep you informed of members activities via our Bolsover Against Life Limiting Sickness (BALLS) page one our website, and would love to hear from you. Photographs? What have you been doing? Perhaps more importantly do you need someone to talk to, via email or telephone, please send all to
Please remember we are not Carers, but we do care for all our members, if we can help we will.
Stay Safe. Stay Well.
