VICE-CHAIR REPORT:-

SOUTH COPELAND DISABILITY GROUP ACTING CHAIR's REPORT

 

This year, we have had many highlights across the board but it sometimes
seems as though the loss of our intelligent, practical, and caring Chair Gary
Jackson dominates even these. Gary loved the Group and was determined to stay
in office even in the face of his long and difficult illness. I think I can say
that I speak for all the Group when I say that he is, and will be, sorely
missed. As you know, we intend to have a memorial plaque placed on one of the
seats to be erected on Haverigg beach in his honour. We hope that this will be
a source of some small comfort to both Maureen and his mother.

I think we have to hope that Gary would be pleased with what has been
achieved in this last year. Because, apart from his passing, 2013 has been
quite good to us.

As regards fundraising, B.A.E. Systems awarded us £750, Millom Hospital
League of Friends donated £20, and the Keswick to Barrow Charity Run gave us
£500.

This year, we chose not to take part in the Christmas Fair as it was
being held outside without the shelter of a marquee. Those of us who helped out
on previous occasions know that even the marquee was cold so sitting outside
for hours in December wasn't really an option for us!

However, we have participated in two bag packs at Tesco's which have
been very successful as well as aiding the Millom Mayor's Charity Events in
both bag packs and coffee mornings.

A big well done and thank-you to both Peter and Rocky for organising and
coordinating the fund raising activities, as well as applying for funds and
seeking donations. A big thank-you also to everyone who has supported our
fundraising throughout the year whether it has been packing bags or donating.
This coming year, we are hoping to complete two more bag packs.

As Tesco tells us 'Every Little Helps' and thanks to everyone's efforts,
the bank balance is very healthy for a relatively small organisation.

The Group has planning applications for this area sent to us for our approval
and we continue to participate with this and will probably need a few of us
also trained to do this in the coming year.

We have been involved with several organisations to help the standard of
life for the disabled community be a better one. And this year we can add a new
connection with the joining of the Group of Millom Parents and Carers
Disability Group and our efforts to gain them a special swing in the Park.

We are consulted regarding the progress of the new surgery and the move
to the new site. our input remains key.

We have continually pushed CBC Highways to complete road and pavement
repairs and, in general, I think they have continued to attend and to listen as
well as to make alterations and repairs in the places we have indicated.

Again, we know that the Police are listening to us and expect to work
even more closely with them in the coming year.

Much 'private' work has been completed with members of the group helping
others to deal with benefit applications and changes as well as blue badge
applications.

Our wreath was laid again at the Remembrance Service.

So, all in all, a productive year on many fronts and I hope our late
Chair would be encouraged by the work we have all done. Let us hope that 2014
is just a successful, if not more.

 

CORRESPONDENCE:- The only really important correspondence
was the grant request to “The Big Lottery” for money to have a special swing
erected in Millom Park.
