We are the Newbies

The Newbies is a group of people aged between twenty-five and forty (well, sort of, we’re not strict on this at all) who meet on the first Tuesday of every month at the Action MS office in Knockbracken.  We have tea and coffee and of course a good old chinwag.  It’s great to talk to others who also have multiple sclerosis and many great friendships have been forged over the years.

However, our group is much more than just having a yarn.  We decide if we would like, for example, someone to come and address our group.  In the past we have had guest speakers who have included a physiotherapist, an MS nurse, a dietician and someone talking to us about benefits.

Also Action MS helps organize trips.  Recently we have been to the Slieve Donard Hotel for our Summer Outing and also had a visit to the Lyric Theatre.  These are only a couple of our many “outings”.

We have loads of fun and are growing in numbers all the time.  Why not try a Tuesday?  If you would like to become a Newbie, just ring the Action MS office on 028 907 907 07 or email for more information.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
