I`ve been away to the RHS Chelsea flower show with Birmingham city council, where I`m pleased to say we won gold.
The theme was the new Birminham libary. The design is divided into four segments.
The front was the new libary with it`s patterned front and the other three section divided by `page leafs` where brummie authors.
Now to get some events on the go.
Thanks today to Janet for the tombola prizes.
Well there is good news and bad news.
The RHS is 100 years old this year and have formed a charity to get young children interested in gardening, so we cannot have a bucket at the Chelsea flower show as they will be collecting for their cause.
The good news is, we can have a bucket at the RHS flower show at the NEC, which we did do a little better at.
I have asked the parks manager for Birmingham if we can have our charity bucket at Chelsea flower show again and he has agreed.
I have just got to confirm with the RHS if this is ok. Fingers crossed.
The lads at work are getting excited already. We will have our cakebreak over the Cofton nursery open weekend when there is more staff about.
Just got to start asking people to do some baking.
I've set the date for the whisky talk, it's the 8th June and the speyside area.
Hope you can make it.
Well done Carl for spotting another `JAYs` picture.
We had a good time at the Catshill boot sale, we got some lovely cuddley toys for a give away on our tombolas and some other bits and bobs.
Sorry, I've neglected our web-site for a bit. Been a bit busy at work and other things going on.
I have been busy looking at events.
I've asked a friend of our to take us on a guided walk around Chaddley woods or Upton Warren lakes.
Jackie has sent off the form for the Bromsgrove Elizabethan market, so we will be there outside Claires/Red lion again.
I've been asked to do another whisky tasting night. I'm looking at June time and the malts from Speyside.
Unfortunately my auntie Sue died recently. She had a electric scooter that is in good condition, serviced and new batteries.
Do you know anyone who is need of a scooter? drop me a line with your phone number.
We are looking at around £200 O.N.O
Local lady Nicky is doing the London marathon for the MS Trust.
21 April 2013
The Virgin London Marathon is one of the great British sporting events, combining elite athletics, mass participation and record-breaking fundraising in one race.
The course is a gruelling 26 miles 385 yards long, passing through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall.
Good luck Nicky.
An article in the Bromsgrove Standard this week about the NHS lottery postcode.
A sad case of a Bromsgrove woman that has to find thousands a year for a treatment that really helps in her in her daily life and yet if she lives just 15 miles down the road, Chris would have it for free. I`m sure there are lots more cases like this.
Cake break has been annouced, it`s on 3rd May.
For your information pack and more details.
Details of the mystery malt night are now in past events.
MS Register has published their first report.
They have asked people with M.S. to complete a survey to get a overall picture of people suffering with M.S.
A lady with M.S called Kaz Aston has up-dated her web-site.
Interesting and some useful information on there.

The Branch was contacted by Worcester Uni. They presented a proposal for a project in which people with MS for the county would be invited to participate in a twelve week exercise classes. At the end of the course the findings would be assessed and a decision made for a full 3 year study on exercise, heath and wellbeing for those with MS.
The cost to the attendees is free and as with the branches own exercise classes there will be time for a chat and a cuppa. Contact the branch if you are interested.

TEN QUICK FACTS ABOUT MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
· An estimated 2,500,000 people in the world have multiple sclerosis - including 100,000 in the UK - it is more common in countries further away from the equator
· MS is the most common potentially disabling disease of the central nervous system affecting young adults in the Western world
· Every week around 50 people in the UK are diagnosed with MS
· Diagnosis is usually between 20 and 40 years of age - rarely under 12 or over 55
· Three women have MS for every two men
· Prognosis is uncertain - ranging from benign through 'coming and going' to severely disabling
· Common symptoms include pain, deadening fatigue, problems with sight, mobility and co-ordination
· MS is not hereditary - but there is a slightly higher chance of getting it if a relative has it - and it is not contagious
· There is no cure for MS but there are now drugs which can modify its course for some people and many symptoms can be successfully treated or managed
· MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is giving neurologists better understanding of MS, helping diagnosis and research into treatments
