Devise our Programme of events for 2009 – GLAD

With 133 days left until Christmas GLAD is now focusing on developing another exciting programme of events for 2009.

During 2008 we have held many interesting events, ranging from our First Birthday party on 10 March to Crazy Golf, Community Safety briefing, Photography competition, Health and Wellbeing Fair and many more. More is also to come with Interior Design event on 2 September 2008, Dance Lesson, Pottery, Sam BummerSeand Christmas Dinner.

We aim to emulate such a successful programme of events in 2009 and have therefore arranged a day where lesbian, gay and bisexual people can come along and help devise our Programme of events for 2009.

It will be fun day where everyone will have an opportunity to contribute ideas.

The event will commence at 10am on Saturday 4 October 2008 at Portaferry Hotel, 10 The Strand, Portaferry, BT22 1PE with a full cooked breakfast, or something more healthy for those keeping an eye on their figure!

We will then discusSeand agree our programme of events after breakfast at approximately 11am breaking for a two course lunch at 1pm. We aim to finish at about 4pm with tea and coffee at 3pm.

The event will be independently facilitated.

Some of us then intend to visit Rioja Mediterranean Bistro, High Street, Bangor and then boogie at Betty Blacks later in the evening. If you are interested in this informal add-on please email

Anyone wishing to attend the Development Day should book their place before end of September 2008. Whilst the event is part funded by North Down Borough Council a charge of 10 per person should be paid beforehand to cover costs of catering etc.

This can be paid in person to a GLAD Management Committee member, via cheque (made payable to Gay and Lesbian across Down) to PO Box 317, BANGOR, BT20 9BU or online using Credit or Debit card at (fee is 10.50, extra 50p to cover credit / debit card processing charges)
