Time to Connect again.
Finally I have the opportunity to let you know about some great news for the Friends of Bangor community.
Firstly, we have published our wonderful Summer’s newsletter and sent you a copy in the post. Let us know if you did not receive it. I am very grateful for all the wonderful and engaging content contributed, it made for a very rich and varied issue. I am of course now inviting you to contribute to the issue already being planned for Christmas 🙂
Secontly, we have moved our website and all processes to the Mindfulness Network as they will be hosting the CMRP activities. We have taken the opportunity to adopt the .org domain so you now will find us on
www.friendsofbangor.org and you write to us using firstname.lastname@example.org.
The move for the CMRP to the MN is well underway and once this is completed, the FoB will be integrated as well. Then the events booking, membership registration / renewal and payment process will be part of this.
For now to start with we are operating a manual process using the new website and you will find out events listed here https://friendsofbangor.org/events and on this page, if you follow the links for registration you will be using our new forms and we will get notification of your registration and will send you options for payment.
Thirdly, we have some wonderful events scheduled for you in the autumn as well as having two new exciting events planned for 2019. Key dates for your diary are:
7th September – a morning event with Gill Johnson in Mill Hill, London – BOOK NOW
28th September – a morning event with Jiva Mashede in Brighton – BOOK NOW
12th October – full day with Ciaran Saunders in London – BOOK NOW

more to follow soon so regularly check the events page for more information and to book your place https://friendsofbangor.org/events/
Last but not least, we are holding off with the renewals until the new systems/payments are fully integrated. So if you registered before September 2017, we will email you once the systems are ready.
Wishing you all a wonderful summer and hope to connect with you soon again.
