NGVFA Respite 2019 review

2019 Respite - Members in JAKs 2019 Respite - Members & families 2019 Respite - Craft time 2019 Respite - Darts afternoon with Rebecca Gadd 2019 Respite - Darts competition

2019 was the NGVFA's 20th break; it was another successful Respite Break.

One of the key aims of our Respite Break, in addition to providing members and families with a well-deserved break, is to provide some "Face to Face" information and support.

This year was another of our "respite light" years - originally due to reduced funding, but the format seems to work well. The only entertainment we provided exclusive to our members was the Monday night in JAKs for the meet and greet; the rest of the week all the onsite Butlins Entertainment was available, which was enjoyable.

There was also the Wednesday afternoon darts competition, very sadly without Eric Bristow this year, although his partner Rebecca did come and see us. It was still a very entertaining afternoon!

The dates for 2020 are: Monday 16th March through to Friday 20th March

Application and expenditure forms will be available soon.
