Polio group celebrate

Last week I had the great pleasure to attend the annual luncheon of the Worthing branch of the British Polio Fellowshipand what a happy and excellent event it was.

Many thanks to the staff of the Windsor Hotel for a superb venue and a lovely meal - all in all a very enjoyable visit for me.

Although Polio is now irradicated in Britain, we ‘post polios’ (all well over 50)struggle on and any support is welcome.

Our chairman helps out whereever possible but we still rely on memebers and their families to keep us going.

The Worthing and District branch is omne of the biggest strongest and most actiove in our national set-up.

Their wide range of trips , activities, and fundraisingis just wonderful.

We were joined on the dayby a large contingent from the Southampton branch and for me it was just heart warming to see so many brave people enjoying themselves

Well Done
