Charity Cheque

We are hoping to be meeting again by May 20th so keep in touch if you would like to come along.

Zoom Networking for Business

Well as you all know by now meeting on line is our way of staying in touch. Still promoting each others’ businesses and new members about to join. I will be introducing our new members next Month.

Worth staying in your network group to help hang in there and stay at the forefront for business possibilities.

Zoom Meeting

Meeting with the crew during shut down.

We are managing to stay in contact and have short meetings on line with Zoom.

We are lucky to have a new member Andy Page of MPH Accountants. He has been supporting everyone with updates on funding for business and has very helpful lists on the company website

Sara Biddle, councellor and therapist, another new member, has joined Mind and other organisations to give online councelling at this difficult time for vulnerable  people.

All reports are that all members are safe and well and enjoying the ability to chat and keep each other going.

WBC On Tour

As we are finding spaces difficult to find that will hold all our members we have been touring around the possibilities in Whitstable and Tankerton.

Please keep in touch with our Chairperson , Nick Hardy 07973 343448 if you are interested in coming along. We do have a limit of one member per trade so please look at our members list to see if your seat is available.

February Update

Mark Greenstreet explained that, sadly, he was going to leave the Club as an opportunity had come up that he couldn’t turn down.  We all expressed our good wishes to him for the future and thanked him for his contributions to the Club.
We had two visitors, one being Andy Page from MPH Accounting (2nd visit); the other Rebecca Pearce, Customer Services Manager from the Miramar in Herne Bay (1st visit).
Charity Update
Sara and Nick met with FAR to find out how we could help them.  More info will be provided at our Charity Day on 12th March.  They have many needs, including wanting to buy a minibus to help with transport for children making long or complex journeys to get to the school.  Would appreciate help with other issues, not just fundraising such as help to make applications for funding.  We will continue working to find the best way to support them.

Welcome to Swelling Matters

Your private lymphoedema therapist in Kent

Welcome to Swelling Matters – an award winning service and a bespoke home from home service developed by myself, Dee Stringer.

I has been in the care industry since 1977. Having trained as a level 2 nurse in HM Forces and then as a level 1 nurse at Canterbury Christ Church University, I have a wealth of nursing knowledge from all aspects of the care industry and from diverse approaches from many different cultures.

I have a HE6 in palliative care and tissue viability and continue to broaden my knowledge with Continued Professional Development.

Swelling Matters is devoted to holistic pain and swelling management with medically registered techniques and is unique in that the company brings the treatments to you in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Swollen limbs and pain are not resolved by 1500hrs Monday to Friday; they continue, unfortunately, through the evenings and at weekends. Swelling Matters has varying clinic times to ensure customers receive advise and care where and when needed.

You can contact Swelling Matters via the website, by phone and on Facebook. Please note, if I do not answer the phone, it is because I am busy with a client. Please leave a message and I will return the call A.S.A.P.
