As we had discussed at the meeting at the beginning of the year I was
planning on the District coming together to send a single unified group to
NIEX. So far I have heard back from a few groups who were interested and
wanting to go ahead with this.
I will be sending the form away with the final names and numbers at the end
of this month. If you have any young people wanting to join I will need
their information and a Â£50 deposit by then also.
For those that have expressed an interest and not sent me this across can
you please do so ASAP.
For getting the monies to me, I work in Antrim town just behind The
Junction, live in Ballyclare and of course meet on a Thursday night 8-9:30
at the Church of the Good Shephard in Monkstown. Hopefully, this sorts most
