The 2019 Families for Families Day is on 13th April at the Whitemoor Lakes Centre near Lichfield in Staffordshire and is part of a Families Activity Weekend
Although the full programme for the Families Day won’t be published for a few months yet, we can say that for 2019, as well as our general Question & Answer Session, topics will also include:
- Learning and Behaviour
- Growing Up and Growing Older with Noonan Syndrome
- Gene Differentiation in NS.
There will be organised activities, both inside and outdoor on Saturday and on Sunday morning as well as entertainment provided on Saturday evening. Like this year, you will be able to stay over on Friday or Saturday or both nights. Similarly, the Saturday Families Day itself will be free of charge to attend (including lunch and refreshments).
One of the great advantages of this year’s was that we had sole use of the whole site. We have been able to get exclusive use of the whole site again for 2019 but whereas this year, it was pure luck that no other groups were booked in, the charity is understandably having to pay a premium to ensure this is the case for 2019. This has meant that we have had to make a modest increase in the price for people wanting to stop over from £25 to £27.50 per person per night which includes dinner, bed & breakfast – still excellent value we feel! Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback from the families this year about the event – “great”, “fantastic”, “lovely” “excellent”, “perfect” – and the extra opportunities to interact and share stories and knowledge with other families, we hope even more people will want to stay over next year.
We can now start taking registrations now for both the Families Day itself and for those wanting to stay over one or both nights. For those who would like to stay, to make life a bit easier, the charity is offering several payment options:
- pay half the amount now – before the Christmas spend really starts – and the other half by the end of February; or
- pay it all by the end of February – or of course…
- pay the whole amount now!
This year we have a dedicated email address for registrations and everything to do with the event – [email protected] – where all your queries and most importantly your completed forms should be sent (although you can always post them if that’s easier). We have just the one form to complete this time whether you’re staying over or just attending the Families Day itself on the Saturday. Registration Form 2019
