It’s almost time for our June meetings – and as some of you know – June is our birthday month for the Paisley group and we will be 4 years old this year. The meeting is on Monday 16th June, and we will be holding our Annual General Meeting at the start, followed by birthday cake and lots of chat. We hope that as many of you can come along and help us celebrate and look forward to what Fibro PaIN can do in the next year …and extend a warm invitation to our Greenock members to come along and join us.   As always we start at 1.00pm, in St Mirin's Cathedral Parish Halls.

The Greenock meeting will be at 11.00am on 19thth June in Your Voice, Greenock

As always, group meetings are posted on the website (www.paisleyfm.org) and our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/groups/FmPAIN/)
