Hello!

I hope that everyone is settling in to their new classes well, and taking advantage of the warmer weather of late!  I really hope that everyone who came along to the first meeting enjoyed themselves and felt that they got something from it!
We are hoping to run a pub quiz in a couple of weeks and we’d like everyone to have an input into where the money goes!  The committee have suggested raising for either Unity in the Community or Scottish Detainee visitors – but if you would like to suggest another group – please email us and let us know!  VOTE HERE = http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VP82K3T
Finally to remind you all, STAR meetings from now on will take place in the TV ROOM of the QMU
