A s stated in the centre’s  latest newsletter,http://www.meganbakerhouse.org.uk/uploads/newsletters/Newsletter_May_final_2011.pdf

The Big Lottery has given this grant to support a three year project called Reach Out:

This will see us  start to deliver outreach services into the adjoin ing counties of  Worcestershire. Shropshire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire and here in Herefordshire, while still providing all of the usual sessions at the centre. I envisage that by the end of year-three we shall be providing CE sessions for children and Parkinson’s clients at ten venues – well that’s the plan!

Great news for the region and all those involved in the project.  Well done and good luck!

I also noted that the centre has what appears to be a smart new website and has recently changed its charity and company numbers.

Photographs of Conductive Education go on show

Is this a first?I have just read a news report of an exhibition of photographs taken by professionals at a Conductive Education centre in the UK.

 The Megan Baker House Photographic Exhibition opened in Worcester Cathedral yesterday with photos of the participants and their families taken during sessions at the Centre. It will remain there until Sunday 21 March.

It is hoped that the exhibition may move to other venues.

I am not aware of any other such ventures, so please let me know if there are any, or have been any.
