NEW VENUE!
The National League of the Blind
21 Hill Street

Hi to everyone from the new Irish committee!

As most of you know, after many years of dedicated work, Treasa O'Callaghan stepped down as the Irish coordinator at the end of last year. We thank her for everything she has done for the Albinism Fellowship here in Ireland and wish her well.

The new committee's first job was to organise our Summer get together this year. Unfortunately, our usual venue was not available to us this year but The National League of the Blind have kindly agreed, at short notice, to allow us use their premises.

Normally a great fun day and an opportunity for adults/parents to catch up while the children play. Light lunch/finger food etc. will be provided and it is planned to have children's entertainment to keep the little ones amused. However, in an effort to keep costs down it would be great if those attending could perhaps bring some salad accompaniments or deserts! Soft drinks/juice and of course tea/coffee will be provided as there are no bar facilities available.

Cost:
€10 per family of four
€5 per individual

For the purposes of catering, please confirm attendance to sandra.watts@albinism.org.uk by 31st May or to any member of the Irish committee known to you.

RNIB Sunshine House School
33 Dene Road
Northwood
Middlesex

Our popular Annual London Gathering returns for 2016 and will again be held at the RNIB Sunshine House School in Northwood, after we received great feedback on the venue from last year's event.

Sunshine House School

Food

Please bring your own food to put on the BBQ and a cake or pudding to share.
We will be providing the BBQs (one for meat, one for veg and one for halal meat), buns, baps, sauces, relishes, salad, tea, coffee and squash.

Plan for the day

We will organise some entertainment for the children, time for adults to socialise and have a brief informal meeting to share the Fellowship's plans for the future.

Getting here by car

The school is within easy reach of the M25. Please note that Dene Rd is a leafy private road and doesn't look like a venue for a school.

Parking

The school has a car park and we will have signs on the entrance. If there is no space in the car park, there is parking on the road but we have been asked to remind people NOT to park over neighbour's drives or on the grass verges.

Getting here by public transport

The nearest tube station is Northwood on the Metropolitan Line. It is about a 10 minute walk from the station to the school. Please note there is a flight of 26 steps to exit the station and no lift. Turn left out of the station and left again onto Green Lane . Turn right into Dene Rd and then turn left to stay on Dene Rd. At the left turn Dene Rd becomes a private road and has no pavements. The school is on your left. Please look out for signs for the way in to the event as we will NOT be using the main entrance to the school.

How to Book

To help us plan for the correct number of people, we are asking people to book in advance for this event.
Please e-mail roselle.potts@albinism.org.uk with number of adults and children.
