Good morning :)
Coventry's BAPCA local group would like to invite you to a day of encounter, based at the Quaker meeting house on 30th September. 10.30-4.30. You can arrive from 9.30 and we need to leave the building by 5pm.
The venue is 0.7 miles from the rail station, and several (7!) buses run from the rail station to the bottom of the road the meeting house is on. There is limited parking at the venue, but on-street paid parking and a multi-storey car park nearby.
BAPCA will provide a range of teas, coffee and cold drinks (and maybe a biscuit or two), and we ask that you bring your own lunch, either just for you, or as a bring and share. As a bring-and-share, please make sure it's clearly labelled.
This is a self-structured day of encounter, which is facilitated non-directively. This means that we (BAPCA trustees) won't be dictating the structure or the content beyond the start and finish time. This day is open to members and non-members of BAPCA and we actively hope that non-members will come along and be involved.
The kitchen and downstairs food area will be open at all times.
The meeting house has a loop and a microphone available for use (please let LJ know in advance if you will need this as they will need to be instructed on how to use the system), and the ground floor has an accessible toilet. There is a small ramp up to the main door and in the building, the coffee area has a small ramp (or one step down) within it, and a stair lift (in the style of a Stannah lift) between the ground floor and the main meeting room.
We recognise that cost is prohibitive to some people and we'd like this to be as little of an issue as we can manage. Therefore, we are making a number of grants available per event. The grants are available for the full cost of the attendance price (£20 for members/£40 for non-members) and 90% of your travel cost, up to a maximum for £100 total. So - if your ticket cost is £40 and your travel is £70 we will cover £100. If your ticket cost is £40 and your travel is £50 we will cover £85 total. Equally, if you would like to pay something, but feel you cannot afford all of it, you can ask for this as well - just drop me an email.
For most people, you might well be able to pay in advance and claim your bursary back on the day/via phone with Di and that's fine. But you might also need to claim the money in advance. This is also possible - please drop me a line as below.
If you have any questions, please send LJ an email. If you'd like to book via phone, please give Di a call on 01600 891508. If you aren't a member, registration of your name and email is required for ease of contact.
