Group Description

If you've seen Community Choirs being formed and performing on TV and wished that there was something like that in Poulton, your prayers have been answered with the new Poulton People's Choir!
Obviously, you'll need a basic interest in performing and ideally be able to hold a note, but the whole point of the brand new Poulton People's Choir is to get people together enjoying a love of music, sharing that energy and excitement with others, and at the same time making friends and developing a new hobby that unites a group of people. There's so much that you can get out of joining a group like this - especially with the long winter night coming on, this could be the start of a whole new hobby!

Tony Brindle-Wills is the musician behind the Choir, and with a group of fellow musicians decided to start the choir and see what happened. So far they have about 20 people signed up - with plenty of room for many more!

Rehearsals are every Wednesday night at Poulton Methodist Church on Queensway - so nice and handy for the car park! The first rehearsal is on 19th October, which gives time for more people to join in and rehearse before the Christmas season and the opportunity to perform sing-along carols.Then next year Tony is hoping to get involved with the local events in Poulton and perfoming at Poulton Gala and the like.

So if you sing in the shower, belt out classics in the car, or perform while hoovering, this is your chance to shine! Just turn up at the rehearsals, or get in touch with Tony on the details below.

Rehearsals start October 19th 2011
7:30pm - 9:00pm then every Wednesday up to Christmas.
Venue: Poulton Methodist Church
Open to people of all ages and abilities.
You don't have to be able to read music to join.
You will know all the songs we learn.
Poulton People's Choir is about to start rehearsing, and you could be part of it.

We will practice a selection of Christmas carols and songs over the next 8 weeks, and then perform in and around the Poulton area in the run up to Christmas.

Scope Response is a free and unique service that offers information, advice and support to disabled people, families and professionals. It is a gateway to all Scope services, allowing us to reach out and work with more people than ever before.

Scope's Regional Response Workers work in a local area specifically with people of all ages with Cerebral Palsy their families and carers that may need a higher level of advice and support. Around the time of a child's diagnosis with Cerebral Palsy this will often mean a home visit to provide information about the condition, and to help ensure that the child's needs are met. At other times we offer telephone advice and support to ensure that the disabled person and their family receive access to local services and support to meet their needs.

Individuals, families and professionals can get in touch with Scope Response through a range of channels and receive support in a number of different ways:

Ian Jones is the Regional Response Worker covering the Cleveleys Area

His role as a Response Worker is to give advice and support, in relation to a wide range of disability issues. This could be anything from finding a local support group through to helping a client to challenge a decision made by the Local Authority Social Services.

When doing home visits to parents of children who have been newly diagnosed with cerebral palsy it gives him the opportunity to offer information and support to families on the causes and effect of Cerebral Palsy as well as share his own personal experience of the condition; he can also provide information on local services and groups..

He will also do a home visit to people who have communication difficulties in relation to any subject.

He is happy to visit school, college, statutory, voluntary organisations, and other interested parties to give presentations on following subjects.

Cause and effect of Cerebral Palsy
History of Scope
The Response Service

When you learn that your child has a disability or complex need, you may want to talk to someone who has been there, someone who understands and who can help you move forward and support you through this worrying and confusing time.

That's where Scope's Face 2 face service can help.

We are a network of professionally trained and supervised volunteer parent befrienders each of whom has a child with a disability or complex need.

We can offer you free, non judgemental support and informal, practical advice.
'Face 2 Face gave me support when I needed it most' (Quote from parent)

Group Description

Time Exchange Fleetwood & St Annes is a new, innovative form of volunteering where anybody over the age of 16 can volunteer by sharing their skills within their local community and actually receive something back.
The concept is simple and has been proven to work in other areas. Members of the bank can give help and support to other members and deposit their time - one hour equals one time credit. They are able to spend their time credits when they need something doing themselves. For example, you may be able to walk a members dog one hour a week and another member may offer to do some gardening one hour a week for you.

No money is involved - all that is banked is time.

If you live in Fleetwood (have a Fleetwood Postcode) and would like further information, please telephone
0303 333 1111 or email: admin@fwhelpdirect.org.uk or Call in to our Poulton office - 37 Breck Road, Poulton, FY6 7AA to register or for a chat.
