Christmas Social Event 2014Our December meeting at the Friends Meeting House, attended by 60 members and friends, was once again a huge success. To start the evening our Chairman introduced the Travellin' Strings, a group of dedicated musicians playing and singing well-known songs from the 50s onwards. Our President, Doctor Peter Scott, gave a short address mentioning the advances in cardiology and giving credit to the support of our Cardiac Group over the past twenty five years. After a break to enjoy an excellent buffet we returned to the meeting room for a quiz, member's poem and more from the 'Strings (@travelinstrings). All in all, an excellent seasonal social event!

Skipton Visit and Canal Cruise:
Friday 28th June 2013
- A party of Support Group members and carers enjoyed a day trip to Skipton. The highlight of the day was a cruise along the Leeds/Liverpool canal which included a roast dinner + homemade desserts served on board whilst passing the ever-changing views outside. The rest of the day was spent at leisure around the outdoor market or in the antique and crafts centre. The feedback from this outing has been totally positive!

The committee would like to thank Bolton C.V.S. for providing a Carers' Grant towards the cost of the outing.

Chatsworth House Visit:
Saturday 24th November 2012 - A party of members and carers went by coach to Chatsworth House, Derbyshire to make a tour of the house and browse round the extensive array of market stalls. The morning was spent browsing and buying and the afternoon was spent touring the House which had been enhanced by Christmas decorations and scenes from pantomimes. Thanks to Alan for organising the event!
