Special needs?

ALLSORTS is a Purbeck-wide information and social/support group for parents and carers of children with special needs. The group was set up some years ago to help parents and carers of children with special needs. The people behind setting it up no longer seem to require the support it provided, but is there anyone out there who would be interesting in taking on running the group? One easy aspect is simply running this blog to keep people informed:

If so, let me know and I can give you editing authority to run the blog and advice on anything else you might to do in terms of linking with various specialist bodies.

Delivery scam (PDS)

Swanage Residents Association?

Some of you will recall there was an advertised public appeal in 2011 to keep the Swanage Residents Association going. I actually thought it had already been wound down, but it seems there are still some formalities to complete. I thought it worth making one last effort to see if anyone is interested in keeping this going (in whatever way a new committee determines). If no community-minded people step forward to fill the key roles (Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, etc) and form a legitimate committee, the organisation WILL finally be formally wound down.
If you wish to join the Committee or stand for election as an Officer, please let me know asap, as the SRA is scheduled to be dissolved at a committee meeting on 15 December 2014. Mike Hadley (Committee Member):

New subject

If you want to raise a new topic, post your comment here — just click first on Comments below, then type in 'Post a comment' (top right of the next window). Can you choose a title for your post, please? Sometimes it's hard to work out what a comment is about and what the subject is. A new heading will soon be set up, allowing others to see and add their own comments.We try to keep posts civilized. And any posts that become too provocative, insulting, threatening or    otherwise unpleasant will be deleted. 

Please note that the moderator may exercise editorial control, to limit posts to subjects likely to be of interest to the majority of people, so not every topic will be posted (there's always the 'Watercooler' topic for miscellaneous issues/observations/chit-chat), and please use an existing thread to debate issues.
