If you think you might be able to spare a little time before and after some event meetings to help set up and clear up each event room then please contact any OC Member or email us on ......



As you can well imagine, our Headstart group does not run by itself, for example, who makes all those fab cakes?, how do we know when the next meeting is? and what shall we spend Headstart's money on? Like all successful organisations, it has to be co-ordinated, and for this to happen, we look to our 5 - 6 totally fab health professionals, who shoulder the responsibility on our behalf, and guide us. The team spends a lot of their own free time and effort to ensure that Headstart works, and works well.




As the group has grown in membership since it's formation, this requires more and more legwork in keeping the records of members up to date. (see below) To help the Headstart five, (Pauline, Debbie, Jayne, Jaimee & Jane) there are a few other individuals, who give up their free time, and who attend the meetings to co-ordinate the next event.

The reason Maidstone was chosen for the meetings is simple. You will be aware that Tuesday afternoon is the main outpatients appointments day, when Pauline Mortimer, Jayne Goddard, Debbie Hannant, Jamie Murrell (currently on maternity leave) and, Jane Dawson are nearly always there.

Member records.

It is quite a daunting task to keep the records of all of our members completely accurate. It would be very helpful, if you could email ........  headstartnews@gmail.com

with your up to date information or check with Jayne, Pauline or Debbie to ensure your details are correct at the meeting you attend most frequently.

If you have any questions or queries relating to any aspect of Headstart, please do not hesitate to contact any OC member at one of the events, or if you can, send us an email.
