    The first meeting of cumnock area diabetes support will be held on Wed 14th November at Cumnock Town Hall starting at 19.30Hrs. It would be nice if anyone from this forum who lives in the area or nearby could come along. If you do please come and say hello to me, I will be the rather panic stricken looking one. If all goes well will be holding firther meetings on the second Wednesday of each month. Your thoughts on this would be appreciated

    I think it's a great idea Mercury. Why not advertise your meeting in your local gp surgery's and your hospital diabetes clinic, more often than enough they'll be happy to help.

    Where I live , our local support group has been given permission to advertise in the
    hospitals eye and feet clinics too.
    Also local supermarket notice boards .
    You can get some great deals on flyers/leaflets and posters to use.
    Some extra ideas there for you to consider :idea:
