Please remember to ask for permission to publish these before you send them through.
Facebook – watch this space!
A number of our Read Easy groups have their own Facebook pages which serve to promote their work and attract new coaches and potential readers through their friends and family. We are currently working to improve the impact the Read Easy Facebook pages can have.
Autumn Conference – save the date
All groups have now been informed, but a reminder to all members of established Read Easy groups, that the annual conference will be held at Chipping Campden secondary school on Saturday 17 October from 10.30-5. Do send in your booking forms at your earliest convenience.
Changes to the web-site – Thank you.
Many thanks to all the Chairs, Coordinators and Coaches who have worked with us to improve the web-site over the past few weeks and been so patient with the various technical challenges along the way. We trust that the majority are now able to log on and access the resources they need, but if anyone is still struggling, please do call the office and we will try to assist you.
