BoB BoS East Update

Abbie's update | East

We have welcomed our new BoB/BoS Coordinator Lindsay to the team and some of you are already getting around to meet her which is fantastic. She is already planning lots of events and meet-ups in the region, so please do pop along to meet her if you can.

This month we took a group of Band of Brothers to Mersea Outdoors where they were involved in many activities including high ropes, archery and low ropes. The three days away were great for anyone who is thinking of employment in that area as there are adventure training instructors on hand to answer any questions and give great advice. The time away is also great for trying something new, meeting new people and getting involved in the great outdoors. We run the residentials three times a year so if you are keen to get involved next year then do just drop me a line.

As well as the dates below, Lindsay is also planning dates for Halloween and Christmas!

What’s coming up?

  • Coffee and cake get-together, Chavasse VC House, 6 October

Alan's update | Midlands

September seems to have flown by with Junior Go Ape in Nottingham, ticket offers for the theatre in Birmingham, John Legend and On Your Marks free entry, a get-together in Worcester and skiing in Tamworth!

Looking forward, we have some more free theatre tickets at J.Cole on 14 October. There will also be a get-together in Stoke on 10 October, and of course a lot of work is going into the Black Tie Ball on the 28 October. I am really looking forward to seeing you all there for our biggest regional event of the year.

If you have any ideas or requests for events, get-togethers, or activities, or you want to organise something just drop me a line and we will see what we can do!

I am also looking to organise some cycling in the Wolverhampton area, and also a curry in the next couple of months so keep an eye on those emails!
