If you attend on a Monday morning the first visit is FREE, but after that the cost is £2.00 per person each week to cover the cost of the refreshments and the hall hire.

If you are experiencing, or have experienced, mental health issues then you are more than welcome to join the group. Membership is open to everyone aged 16 and over.

Open Committee Meeting

11th November 2019

Together in Mind held our last committee meeting of 2019. We discussed many parts of the group's administration including the minutes from the last meeting, finances, website, Christmas meal and the activities for coming drop in sessions. We have agreed to raise the entrance fee from the start of 2020 to £3. We have agreed to hold this year's Christmas meal at the Olive Branch pub in Horsham. The booking of the Christmas meal is subject to confirmation. Our initial planned date for the meal will certainly change however due to the pub not being open on Mondays. The time and date will be listed in the "up and coming events" as soon as it is booked. The meal will be partly subsidised by Together in Mind who are going to pay £15 per person towards the cost. You are advised to bring a minimum of £20 to cover the remaining cost of the food, a drink with your meal, and the required 10% service charge that will be included on our bill. If you wish to have a few drinks you will need to bring extra money with you. 

Quiz

4th November 2019

The group held one of our regular quizzes, with the questions set by quiz-master Steve. There were 10 multiple choice general knowledge questions. Everyone did well in the quiz. In first place with 10/10 was the team of Neal, Tom and Poppy. In joint second place with 9/10 were the team of Bernie, Angie and Richard, and the team of Rob, Al and Ben. There was a final tie breaker question to decide between the two second place teams with Bernie, Angie and Richard taking second place overall after the tie break.

 

Fireworks

26th October 2019

Together in Mind celebrated fireworks night at the Horsham Cricket Club's fireworks night event. We met at the pub  before making our way to the cricket club. Although Saturday night's weather was not fantastic many of the group's members turned out to enjoy a spectacular fireworks display. After the display we enjoyed drinks and a band in the cricket club's pavilion. It was fantastic to see so many people enjoying the night.

Bingo

The group held a game of Bingo for this session. There were many winners from the competition and each winner received a prize. Winners included Al, Poppy, Richard, Tom, Lucy, Alex and Amber. Two very lucky members each won twice, these were Rob and Angie.
